John Gossage's Favorite

Richard Prince 1234/ instagram recordings
Sébastien Girard & Richard Prince

"Richard Prince, punk/philosopher, has always been a favorite of mine for his artworks that give clarity to what it means to be part of what is called for lack of a better word MEDIA."




Rinko Kawauchi's Favorite

https://www.photoeye.com/best-books-2019/details.cfm?FirstName=Rinko&Lastname=Kawauchi
The Pillar
Stephen Gill

"The bird’s eyes meet mine as I flip through the pages. It’s almost as if it’s asking me; who are you?
Further through the pages and it feels as if I have become the bird myself. The barriers that separate us seem to dissolve - and for a moment I enjoy the sensation of suspension; floating."




Mary Frey's Favorite

Kleinstadt
Ute & Werner Mahler

"We are presented with clean but empty streets. Parked cars, an overflowing trash can or a menacing dog are the only evidence that life does exist here. Yet the strength of this work is in the portraits of the young people sequenced throughout the book."




Susan Lipper's Favorite

https://www.photoeye.com/best-books-2019/details.cfm?FirstName=Susan&Lastname=Lipper
The Canary and the Hammer
Lisa Barnard

"Lisa Barnard has a keen awareness of how inevitable changes of time and place will interact with her—by design—cobbled together and subjective cautionary tale. Though she proceeds with a playful set of arresting and seductive images that strategically investigate both the physical medium of photography and the nature of “documentary” while conveyed with large doses of whimsy."



Jason Fulford's Favorite

https://www.photoeye.com/best-books-2019/details.cfm?FirstName=Jason&Lastname=Fulford
Slant
Aaron Schuman

"Aaron Schuman's book, Slant, has the things I love most in an artwork—maximum simplicity that unpacks into something complex, with layers of meaning, humor and heaviness. The content comes from a small town in the United States, Amherst, Massachusetts, where Schuman grew up."





Tomoki Matsumoto's Favorite

https://www.photoeye.com/best-books-2019/details.cfm?FirstName=Tomoki&Lastname=Matsumoto
Carnival
Mark Steinmetz

"Strong and beautiful images, as always by Steinmetz. But it's not only images, I liked the format/design (not classical way!!) of this book very much. It is very nice to have."
