H. said he loved us
By Tommaso Tanini
Discipula Editions

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2015 by Alejandro Cartagena

"What does a photobook really 'tell' you? Is it about telling or describing? What is H Said He Loved Us? Exactly what happened while I was looking and reading through it, I can't explain. Books hit you when they are made like this one. For me H Said He Loved Us took me back to a place of constant fear, a time when I felt scared of being outside and of other people. When I read the words I felt them in my stomach. But they were pictures of nothing. Words that just suggested something. It seems this photobook is about opening doors but not guiding you through the space; it's an introduction but not a conclusion. It was a difficult book but I came back to it many times this year hoping to find out more about what I was feeling." —Alejandro Cartagena

Text by Gu Zheng, Raymond Lum, Ruben Lundgren, Stephanie H. Tung, Gerry Badger. Editor by Martin Parr and Wassink Lundgren.

Hans Gremmen

"Simply a book that had to be made. The collaboration of Parr/WassinkLundgren has proven to be a golden combination. A standard work that is worth every kilo on your bookshelf." —Hans Gremmen

Melanie McWhorter

"There are too few Peter Mitchell books out there and this charming ode to history and possessions shows why there should be more." —Jeffrey Ladd

By Geert Goiris
Roma Publications

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2015 by:
Hans Gremmen
Sarah Bradley

"The work of Geert Goiris has the unique quality of being completely different on the walls of museums, as in a book. On the wall his work directly shows the strong individual quality. But in the books Goiris manages to show the compelling layer between the photographs. Prophet creates a parallel world in which you want to get lost."—Hans Gremmen

R+R (Rest + Relaxation)
Created by Ryan Arthurs
Houseboat Press

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2015 by Kevin Messina

"I chose this book earlier this year for a photo-eye feature, and as I looked back at the year to compile this list, it remains a powerful presence for me. If you have the means to buy photographic art, I can't recommend this strongly enough."—Kevin Messina

Find a Fallen Star
By Regine Petersen
Kehrer Verlag

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2015 by Kevin Messina

"I first encountered this project in Arles several years back, and was immediately hooked. The book is a beautiful example of how a 'trade' publication can be produced in a manner that still shows the hand of the artist."—Kevin Messina

By Gabriele Galimberti and Paolo Woods
Dewi Lewis Media

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2015 by Martin Parr

"An incredibly thorough exposé of the whole business surrounding dodgy tax havens. Not the most photogenic subject, but they have found good images from these bland and occasionally exotic places, backed up by forensic research."—Martin Parr
