Martin Parr's favorite book from 2018

John Myers, one of the great photographers from the UK who has been somewhat overlooked, is having this discrepancy corrected with this series of books from RRB publishers. The first features the wonderful portraits that Myers took in the 70s, many of which came from his original project, Middle England. These deadpan portraits showed people in their homes or gardens and just sing off the page.

Martin Parr's favorite book from 2018

Yet again Stephen Gill pulls off another stunner with this simple yet enchanting concept of having a trip wire take photos whenever any birds land on a pillar he has erected 100 meters form his rural Swedish house.

The resulting images and sequences are both outrageous and beautiful and quite unexpected.

Martin Parr's favorite book from 2018

This huge and remarkable book, comes from Peress shooting in Northern Ireland for a period of 25 years. The book is laid out as a series of days, and within this there is a big variety of shooting methods, from panoramas to blown up contact sheets and still images from the TV. To accompany the two volumes there is also a book of Annals where all the key players and events in Northern Irish history are explained. This is the most thorough and brilliant documentary project I have ever seen.
