"Another great failure of a book, by someone whose failures are more interesting than others successes. Or to paraphrase Robert Duvall in Apocalypse Now 'Goldman don't surf.'" —John Gossage

Sochi Singers
By Rob Hornstra and Arnold van Bruggen
$69 — Purchase Book

"Sochi Singers is a lavishly over-size paperback documenting the quirky Russian custom of live singing entertainment at dinner establishments. Interspersed with scene-setting images of Sochi's surrounding beaches and boardwalk, the photographs of the singers are at times strange and funny, their environments often looking more like community center karaoke than something for professional vocalists. Still, they stand earnestly among the speakers, cables and synthesizers, serenading an unseen crowd." —Sarah Bradley

Rasen Kaigan / Album
Photographs by Lieko Shiga
$133 — Purchase Book

"It is hard to decide if the series of photographs included in this big and heavy book are pushing me to include it in this list. Certainly one of the strongest works I have seen this year as every single image stands alone, but the book is also very well edited and manages to add even more mystery to the initial troubling astonishment that the series produces. Definitely a must have." —Cristina De Middel
