Martin Parr's Favorite

The Pillar
Stephen Gill

"Yet again Stephen Gill pulls off another stunner with this simple yet enchanting concept of having a trip wire take photos whenever any birds land on a pillar he has erected 100 meters form his rural Swedish house.

The resulting images and sequences are both outrageous and beautiful and quite unexpected."




Aaron Stern's Favorite

Animals
Sage Sohier

"To me, this book is more than just pictures of people with their pets. She captured these intimate moments of people and their animals at a time before cell phones, internet, social media."




Rebecca Norris Webb's Favorite

Slant
Aaron Schuman

"'Tell all the truth but tell it slant,' Dickinson writes, a line that’s inspired Aaron Schuman’s Slant, a kind of creative conversation with the poet and her hometown of Amherst, Massachusetts, during another deeply divided era in our country’s history."





Susan Burnstine's Favorite

The State of Water
Brad Temkin

"In his third book, he focuses on the transformative properties of water as we reuse it, and how it’s integrated back into nature. Temkin embraces the strangeness of forms and the distorted sense of scale found within water reclamation plants, resulting in a stunning collection of abstract and at times surreal imagery found with the landscape of water transformation."



Regina Anzenberger's Favorite

Jamais je ne T'oublierai
Carolle Bénitah

"This photobook is the best gift for Christmas and has been the most striking discovery for me at Paris Photo this year. A book about family, about missing the loved ones and about the value they had for oneself. Found photographs from the fleamarket, partly painted with gold, become like everybody’s own family life of ancestors."



Renate Aller's Favorite

Lines and Lineage
Tomas van Houtryve

"In his exceptionally beautifully printed book Lines and Lineage, Thomas van Houtryve recontextualizes and corrects the narratives and mythologies of the Far West as they had been mis-presented in the American awareness for the last 150 years—and again self-servingly for the recent administration."
