This is my bookblog where I review an eclectic combination of photobooks, from new publications to some of the recognised classics.
I'm often surprised (if truth be told, amazed) that photographers who join me on workshops have spent thousands on their equipment, but invested very little if at all on photobooks. As Martin Parr says in an introduction to his three-volume history of the photobook: "Photographers learn
more about their medium from other photographers' books than from any other source."
Classic photobooks can cost thousands, which is way beyond what I can afford or want to spend, so I have a £100 limit. Most have cost much less, especially second hand. My reviews are as much about a book's design and print quality as the photographs and I don't review books from publishers which allows me to be more subjective.
