THE BEST BOOKS OF 2012
Anne Wilkes Tucker
Photographer / Bookmaker
Brilliant street shooting without the embarrassing storytelling baggage.
Lick Creek Line.
Pastoral violence in a subtle color book.
Found Photos in Detroit.
Should be an easy book but it isn't; just plain scary.
CRISTINA DE MIDDEL
The best new artist/first book this year. Great book craft.
Life’s a Beach.
The perfect way into Parr's way of thinking. Take pictures of everyday life, make them elegant by bookcraft to make them ordinary all over again.
Simple artworks, casual pictures that produce a book of unbroken energy.
MATTHEW S. WITKOVSKY
The smartest history of a time when photography really started thinking. Work that makes a lot of current things seem easy.
A model for how one might think about pictures and how they might work, or not.
As Chuck Berry once wrote "Like a stroke of thunder and a streak of heat."
The best company/artists book of this century.
(Not for sale)
