Best Books 2015: Yumi Goto

Best Books 2015 Best Books 2015 Yumi Goto 2015 Best Books picks from Yumi Goto.

Here is my selection of the 10 best photobooks of 2015. This list composes what I consider to be great books, not only because they entail long-term research and in-depth investigation, but also because they challenge typical design and format. The audience can interact with the visual story narratives in these books, which also gives new voice to people and events through history and its consequences. The books not only have the value of great perspective, but they also show a new way of looking. They make us realize the new value of archival works created by photography legends.
