Best Photo Photo Books of 2022
Here is a selection of photo books that, in my opinion, should be in your library! It is of course a very subjective choice and if I could, I would have chosen at least 50 of them. This collection will help you to draft your 'wish list' or to find the perfect gift for someone who enjoys photography. Happy Holidays!
Exclusive Interview with Niko J. Kallianiotis
Niko J. Kallianiotis' AthĂȘnai in Search of Home (published by Damiani) presents photos taken in and around Athens, the city in which he grew up. The images reflect the artist's eagerness to assimilate back into a home that feels at once foreign and familiar. Throughout the years the city and the surrounding territories have experienced their share of socio-economic struggles and topographic transformations that have altered its identity. The city of Athens in Kallianiotis' photographs is elliptically delineated as a vibrant environment that binds together luxury and social inequality. The photographer depicts a city in which the temporal and the spatial elements often clash with each other while conducting his research for a home that has changed over the years as much as he did.
Exclusive Interview with Elaine Mayes
In The Haight-Ashbury Portraits, 1967-1968 (published by Damiani) during the waning days of the Summer of Love, Elaine Mayes embarked on a set of portraits of youth culture in her neighborhood. Mayes was a young photographer living in San Francisco during the 1960s. She had photographed the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 and, later that year the hippie movement had turned from euphoria to harder drugs, and the Haight had become less of a blissed-out haven for young people seeking a better way of life than a halfway house for runaway teens.
Byker by Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen
Originally published in 1983 , Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen's Byker is recognised as a seminal body of work and a modern classic of photography. Konttinen documented a close-knit community in Newcastle in an area that was her home for seven years and which was destined for wholesale redevelopment. The work gained national recognition as a key photographic account of a rich working class culture on the eve of its destruction. The book was selected by The Observer as one of the top ten books of the year.
Walker Evans: Last Photographs & Life Stories
In this unconventional, lyrical biography, Lesy traces Evans's intimate, idiosyncratic relationships with men and women-the circle of friends who made Walker Evans who he was. Evans's photographs of James Agee, Berenice Abbott, Lady Caroline Blackwood, and Ben Shahn, among others, accompany Lesy's telling of Evans's life stories.
Oh India by Thomas James Parrish
Thomas James Parrish presents his photobook and photography exhibition 'Oh India' as a part of his photography fundraising project. In 2016 Thomas spent 6 months travelling across northern India on a documentary-travel project. During his time in West Bengal, he had the fortune to visit Kaikala Chetana, a volunteer-run, community-based education program for India's rural poor in the Haripal Block of the Hooghly District, 50km from Kolkata.
Olivier Kervern: Fin D’Automne
"Fin D'Automne" from Olivier Kervern is a collection of black and white photographs taken during three consecutive journeys to Japan, between 2015 and 2019, that delicately translate the feeling of being a foreigner in Japan and the intimacy of a new love story.
Exlusive Interview with Jessica Todd Harper about her Book Here
Like 17th-century Dutch painters who made otherwise ordinary interior scenes appear charged with meaning, Pennsylvania-based photographer Jessica Todd Harper looks for the value in everyday moments. Her third monograph Here (Published by Damiani) makes use of what is right in front of the artist, Harper shows how our unexamined or even seemingly dull surroundings can sometimes be illuminating
I Hope You Find What You’re Looking For by Gloria Baker Feinstein
Nowadays who really looks forward to open their mailbox? Let's be honest, no ones writes anymore and when you have a letter in the mail it is either a bill or an unwanted commercial. Yet sometimes there are surprises and I felt like a little girl when I received the unexpected gift from Gloria Baker Feinstein. I must confess I was not familiar with her work and it was with no prejudice what so ever that I opened her book 'I Hope You Find What You're Looking For'.
