Jörg Colberg's Favorite

Gift
Mari Katayama

"I consider Mari Katayama to be one of today's most interesting artists. While photography plays a prominent role in her process (she serves as her own model), sculptural elements are also added to her installations. The work itself is bold and daring. It focuses on the fact that Katayama was born with tibial hemimelia, which resulted in a cleft left hand and deformed legs, which she had amputated as a young child."


Adam Bell's Favorite

were it not for
Michael Ashkin

"Pairing image and poetic text, were it not for is an urgent and timely book as we slowly awaken from the lies and empty promises of 20th-century hypercapitalism."




Matthew Genitempo's Favorite

Entrance to Our Valley
Jenia Fridlyand

"Jenia Fridlyand’s Entrance to Our Valley was unquestionably my favorite release of the year. There’s no hook or overwrought concept, just a simple interior look into the everyday of the artist. Fridyland never takes too much, and a deep gratitude can be sensed in every single moment."




Mark Klett's Favorite

Grid Corrections
Gerco de Ruijter

"This book matches a conceptual aerial photography project with a unique and innovative book design. Photographer Gerco de Ruijter’s work focuses on the thousands of parallel roads that define much of the midwestern and western US landscape. When seen from above these roads inevitably contain junctions or slight bends. These “corrections,” indicate where the Jeffersonian theory of an ordered and egalitarian landscape grid meets the reality of the earth’s curved surface."



Jordan Sullivan's Favorite

Lassen
Malgorzata Stankiewicz

"A dark visual poem. An odyssey through the wasteland. A prophecy. The future of everywhere. The nowhere country. The country inside the country."





Jennifer Yoffy's Favorite

The Park
Kohei Yoshiyuki

"I have long loved Kohei Yoshiyuki’s Park photos — surreptitious nighttime captures of lovers and voyeurs in Japanese parks in the 1970s. The couples he captures in the midst of their furtive sexual exploits are blissfully unaware of not only Yoshiyuki’s camera, but of the throngs of Peeping Toms inching so close to the lovers that they can, and occasionally do, touch them."
