Got 70s - photography and everyday life today as present.

The 70s includes about ten photographs by each of the selected artists: Alberto García-Alix, Allan Sekula, Ana Mendieta, Anders Petersen, Carlos Pazos, Christian Boltanski, Cindy Sherman, Claudia Andujar, David Goldblatt, Douglas Huebler, Ed van der Elsken, Eugene Richards, Fina Miralles, Gabriele and Helmut Nothhelfer, Hans-Peter Feldmann, J.D. Okhai Ojeikere, Karen Knorr, Kohei Yoshiyuki, Malick Sidibé, Sophie Calle, Victor Burgin, Viktor Kolár and William Eggleston. Alongside this parade of great photography, The 70s also includes two illustrated essays by relevant artists of the time, as well as presentation texts of the participating artists and a selection of classic writings on photography published in this decade, by Roland Barthes, Susan Sontag, John Berger, Allan Sekula and Victor Burgin. Finally, it supplies a detailed chronology of socio-political transformations and the evolution of photography...

Can I check if anyone have bought latest copy of Anders Petersen, Publisher: Bokforlaget Max Strom?

It seems like a collection including some of the pictures of his others book. I'm considering this copy. I like Soho, so thinking of adding Anders collection.

It's a retrospective going from his latest work, to his earlier work. Good book but if you have his other books it will be superfluous.

And since we're discussing Swedish photographers, I have to recommend Kenneth Gustavsson, and his posthumous "The Magic Bar".

Thanks for your input guys. I have it on the cart. Another wish list is From Back Home. Will wait for the Bokforlaget Max Strom to come first.

@Rogrund, thanks for the heads-up. There are quite many pictures on Kenneth Gustavsson website, nice work. I'm gonna get the book when it is out.

The Americans by Robert Frank


Just learnt from Fondation HCB that there will be an upcoming HCB book this year. Currently there is an exhibition at Centre Pompidou, Paris. So far I have only one HCB book, definitely looking forward to the new book.

The Calotype in 19th Century America, by David Hanlon.
Painstakingly researched, historically accurate, thoroughly complete, excellently written. Brings heretofore unseen materials to light on the subject. From Mautz Publishing.

If you love old processes, this is about the oldest you can get.

Book depository lists it as being released 28th March, and the French version already available. I might have to grab it.

Lee Friedlander:Photographs from 1978. I wanted it because I did not have any of his books that were published by his own press, Haywire Press. I bought it through Amazon via Memphis Library Friends and I got a bonus! It was inscribed to Bill and Rosa!

Understanding A Photograph - John Berger

I'm always impressed by the fluent style of his writing and his perceptive insight. Ways Of Seeing is a book I frequently return to to think about photography, so this set of essays is a real find.

The other day I found a brand new copy of "Looking In: Robert Frank's The Americans" for just 10,000 yen. I decided to pick it up right there and then as prices for these even on Amazon have increased! The book is basically now out of print.

I also picked up "The Archive 26: Garry Winogrand : Early Work".

Blood And Champagne: The Life And Times Of Robert Capa - Alex Kershaw

"War is like an actress who is getting old. It is less and less photogenic and more and more dangerous."
- Robert Capa

The book is somewhat pulp-ish... Kershaw seems to touch all the major points, some ever so briefly, I enjoyed it... and there are plenty of references if you want to go off in different directions.

Reymond Depardon "Manicomio"

A word of warning - order from Amazon with care. They have it listed as "hardcover" there, but softcover may be delivered. The hardcover is in principle the first edition (from Steidl anyway), but they did a small pre-run for Paris book expo in softcover, and that crept into Amazon under disguise. They are of course probably the same, but I imagine hardcover may be more beautiful.

I will be in Paris at the beginning of next month and am really looking forward to seeing the retrospective. Won't be buying any more HC-B books though

I really enjoyed and was affected by Ways of Seeing, but didn't have an appetite for most of the essays in this book. His essays on photography are more on the politics of the image than on aesthetics.

The Thames & Hudson book on Surrealist Photography.

Prompted by the discussion of the latest HCB exhibition, which touched on his links to Surrealism and Communism, when I spotted this volume on the shelves at Silverprint, I felt it was worth picking up to look further into a group I felt I didn't know enough about.

It has 61 photographs, albeit reproduced rather small to fit the pocket format, and an introduction by the late Christian Boucqueret.

I got Salgado's "An Uncertain Grace" today. I'm a big fan of his work, especially his earlier documentary projects, and this book is a treat! It's very reasonably priced (around £20 here in the UK), the photo quality is excellent, there are just the right number of pictures overall so the book is not too big and lengthy or too small, and the interviews are very illuminating. Highly recommended.

Absolutely not. One of my favourite books of all time is 'Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and '70s' by Ryuichi Kaneko and Ivan Vartanian, published by Aperture.

The great think about the Badger Parr series is that it is exactly "a book about photobooks". There are so many I have never seen, some I will probably never see, but many I want to see. Most I would not have know about without this series, so no, not a rarified step at all, for me. I do see your point but this "book about books" avoids any such rarification.

A step too far? For some maybe, but not for those who take them seriously.

Besides the Par/Badger books, there is Andrew Roth's, The Book of 101 Books. Also, Japanese Photo books of the 1960's and 1970's
, the Errata Editions series, etc. How about Various Small Books, the book about books that reference ED Ruscha's books (Now maybe that's a step too far)?
The mother of all books on books...Looking in, Robert Frank's, The Americans.
Always cracks me up to see that book and its subject side-by-side.

I have the Dyer book, but just never could get into it. I am currently enjoying rereading many of the essays in Badger's, Pleasures, though.

Two new ones.

Twenty years ago I was quite passionate about architectural photography. Books about two of the best out there, whom I have always admired:

Julius Shulman: "Modernism Rediscovered"

Balthazar Korab: "Architect of Photography"

Enjoyable reading.

Not at all. Done properly it should just be book of the front covers of the books in a single fold out with rear covers on the reverse

Gary
Stephen Shore: A Road Trip Journal is a strong contender in that category, and is also excellent for flattening negatives, and I would also include Henri Cartier-Bresson Scrapbook as a sub category of a book about a book that never actually was.
Then you can go to re-issues that add material not in the original without actually changing the title, leading contender Koudelka: Gypsies
