Gift Guide Roundup
The New York Times Magazine Photographs by Kathy Ryan is the book that should be on everybody’s list, as noted by the Wall Street Journal, InStyle Gift Guide, Refinery 29, and NPR. Featuring over two hundred of the best photographers working in vastly different styles, this book offers a page-turning mix ranging from photojournalism to celebrity portraiture.
Best books of the year, according to American Photo, include The New York Times Magazine Photographs and Is This Place Great or What by Brian Ulrich in the photojournalism category, and The Suffering of Light by Alex Webb in the retrospective category.
Photo District News calls Bruce Davidson‘s Subway and Josef Koudelka‘s Gypsies among the top ten photo books of 2011. These classics have been updated for their newest editions, and both feature never-before-seen images.
Showing us a lot of love, The Guardian listed Illuminance by Rinko Kawauchi, The Suffering of Light by Alex Webb, Subway by Bruce Davidson, Gypsies by Josef Koudelka, and Photographic Memory: The Album in the Age of Photography by Verna Posener Curtis on their Photography Book Gift Guide.
Straight from the Wall Street Journal Gift Guide is The Unseen Eye by W.M. Hunt, a William Meyers pick. Hunt’s instinctive pursuit of striking images has resulted in a collection that manages to evoke a picture of humanity from birth to death, with all the associated nuances of memory, wit, eroticism, fear, grief, and horror.
Two of Alec Soth’s favorites were Illuminance by Rinko Kawauchi and Photographic Memory by Verna Posener Curtis. While Conscientious’ Joerg Colberg listed Is This Place Great or What by Brian Ulrich and Photographic Memory by Verna Posener Curtis as the year’s best.
