Volume III.

By Martin Parr and Gerry Badger.
Phaidon, London, England, 2014. 320 pp., 900 color illustrations, 11½x9¾".

Publisher's Description

The third and final volume in Phaidon's acclaimed Photobook series, hailed as 'the most important contribution to the field since modern histories of photography began to appear in the early 20th century' (photo-eye).

This comprehensive study of the contemporary photobook brings the history of the genre fully up to date, highlighting over 200 books dating from World War II to the present day.

Photographer Martin Parr and co-author Gerry Badger offer a fresh approach to photographic history, focusing on the development of photography in its published form and covering key genres such as conflict, memory, society, place and desire.

Features well-known photobooks, such as Ryan McGinley's The Kids Are Alright (2000) and Paul Graham's A Shimmer of Possibility (2009), alongside new discoveries and lesser-known works such as Tano d'Amico's E il '77 (1978) and Mao Ishikawa's Hot Nights in Camp Hansen (1982).

Richly illustrated with over 800 newly commissioned color photographs.
