Bryan Schutmaat's Favorite

The Pillar
Stephen Gill

"With a simple concept, Gill reveals the vibrancy of bird life as it has never been seen before. These wonderful pictures made me feel as though I was allowed into a hidden world not meant for human eyes. The Pillar is a pure delight and will not be forgotten."





Ruben Lundgren's Favorite

Inventions (1915-1938)
Luce Lebart

"Who can't enjoy the simple beauty of a taxi equipped with an anti-crushing device or a nice set of cloud projection disks from 1928? They are beautiful analogue reminders of innovative times. Its funny that now we are able to see these photos (besides their striking visual rigour) as moving, almost adorable and extremely funny."




Tim Carpenter's Favorite

I wish the world was even
Matteo Di Giovanni

"Back in July, I wrote about the remarkable photobook I wish the world was even by Matteo Di Giovanni for the photo-eye blog. I loved it then, and my appreciation has only deepened in the months since. In this book, the twin truths of longing and of thwarted desire somehow find precarious coexistence."




Christian Patterson's Favorite

Family Car Trouble
Gus Powell

"Family Car Trouble. Gus Powell’s masterful family photo novella. Beautiful, sad and bittersweet. Perfect. The Volvo cried, and I cried with it."






Kevin Bond’s Favorite

Elf Dalia
Maja Daniels

"Daniels’ photographs accompany Perrson’s archive from the century before her; their images are woven together with text from the language unique to this small town. The result reads like epic fiction, a mysterious fantasy coinciding with historical fact."




Owen Kobasz's Favorite

https://www.photoeye.com/best-books-2019/details.cfm?FirstName=Owen&Lastname=Kobasz
The Coast
Sohrab Hura

"Sohrab Hura’s fourth book, The Coast, is comprised of flash heavy, unsettling, absurd photographs. In these images, Hura uses metaphorical imagery to photograph the 'beating pulse' of the world he was living in."
