Blake Andrews’s Favorite Book from 2019

Omaha Sketchbook by Gregory Halpern.   Published by Mack.

Gregory Halpern's Omaha Sketchbook is a sharp meditation on the American heartland, an homage to color contact sheets, and a bit of revisionist photobook history. All of which might be enough to make it my favorite photobook of 2019. But when that material assumes the form of a scrapbook glued to children's construction paper, I'm dumbfounded. A truly original work of art.

Blake Andrews is a photographer based in Eugene, OR.
