Brian Kanagaki's Favorite

Looking at the Overlooked
John Myers

"I would say to the average viewer there is nothing special or interesting about these photos, but that's what makes the title Looking at the Overlooked so apt. Even Myers himself calls these 'boring photos.' But I think there is something in Myers' photos that we all strive for, he has a keen way of just capturing the moment without comment or influence."




Laura Moya's Favorite

Jamais je ne t'oublierai
Carolle Bénitah

"Intrigued by the amount of gold gilt in Paris, I was drawn to the work of Carolle Bénitah at Paris Photo — her series Jamais je ne t'oublierai (I Will Never Forget You) examines issues surrounding ancestry and memory, myths and truths."




Forrest Soper's Favorite

DOUBLE HELL
Trevor Clement

"Trevor Clement has quietly created a masterwork, and in doing do has accomplished what I always yearn for — yet seldom see — in the photobook world."




Éanna de Freine's Favorite

No Buddha in Suburbia
Peter Bialobrzeski

"I love a book that throws me unceremoniously and unapologetically into a whole new world, which is exactly the feeling I get when going through No Buddha in Suburbia each time."



Jess Dugan's Favorite

https://www.photoeye.com/best-books-2019/details.cfm?FirstName=Jess&Lastname=Dugan
At No Point In Between
Zora J. Murff

"As he often does so eloquently, Murff approaches a difficult and complex topic from multiple vantage points, creating a project that is poetic and subjective, but simultaneously engaged with an objectively violent past."





Michelle Marsh's Favorite

https://www.photoeye.com/best-books-2019/details.cfm?FirstName=Michelle&Lastname=Marsh
Seeing Deeply
Dawoud Bey

"Dawoud Bey's Seeing Deeply is stunning in every way. The work, of course. Re-experiencing the Polaroids, my first introduction to Bey, took my breath away for the second time in my life. The Harlem work before, and all that came after, including the Character Project and The Birmingham Project, the latter of which will haunt me for some time."
