Michael Mack's Favorite

were it not for
Michael Ashkin

"Over the past year or more, the most consistently stunning and challenging books have come out of Amsterdam, through the publishing of ROMA and fw:books. I could have selected a number of books by each of these publishers as my favourite of the year but settled on Michael Ashkin’s were it not for".



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."





Miwa Susuda's Favorite

Entropy
Ari Marcopoulos

"Marcopoulos’ photos are pervasive serenity, an oasis in a frenetic urban landscape. His work is a reminder of hope against all odds—a reminder that we can connect, that we can attain fleeting serendipity and even love in the face of apparent futility."





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."






Rafal Milach's Favorite

https://www.photoeye.com/best-books-2019/details.cfm?FirstName=Rafal&Lastname=Milach
EVOKATIV
Libuše Jarcovjáková

"EVOKATIV is a manifesto of personal freedom put against the political context of communist Czechoslovakia. Libuše Jarcovjáková is a strong female voice liberating both the body and space from the oppressive look."





Karen Jenkins's Favorite

Taken From Memory
Sheron Rupp

"To pass muster on porch and pathway; to weave through lines of laundry, cats and cars; to wait expectantly on a fish or a flower; to trace Sheron Rupp’s thirty-plus year journey to find home in another’s backyard is a wonder worth pursuing."
