Martin Parr’s Favorite Book from 2019

The Pillar by Stephen Gill.   Published by Nobody.

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 is a photographer, a curator, and editor. He co-authored, with Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History. Volumes I-III
