Rixon Reed's Favorite

The Castle
Photographs by Richard Mosse

"Richard Mosse's The Castle surfaces among this year's incredibly rich sea of photobooks as an extraordinary tour de force that perfectly blends exquisite design with hauntingly rich content. Published by MACK, London, the book's intricate inclusion of multiple gatefolds, richly printed using silver ink on black paper, meshes perfectly with Mosse's unusual exploration of life in temporary refugee encampments along migration routes from Central Asia and the Middle East to Europe."
