9780714844336: The Photobook: A History - Volume 2

"Photographers have been making photobooks--bound collections of their works--ever since the birth of photography in the early nineteenth century ... This publication tells the story of photography via the history of the photobook, revealing the ways in which photographers have influenced each other's work through their books, and consequently how their use of photography has developed over time ... The first of two extensive volumes, this publication explores more than 200 photobooks through 750 colour illustations, detailed captions, and an illuminating text written by the photographer"--Dustjacket.

About the Author:

Martin Parr's celebrated photographs bridge the divide between art and documentary photography. His studies of the idiosyncrasies of mass culture and consumerism around the world, his innovative imagery, and his prolific output have placed him firmly at the forefront of contemporary art. Parr is a member of the international photo agency Magnum Photos, and has recently extended his interest to film-making. He is an avid collector and maker of photobooks. His own photobooks include The Last Resort (1986), Common Sense (1999) and Boring Postcards (Phaidon Press, 1999). The extensive and only monograph on his work, Martin Parr by Val Williams, is published by Phaidon Press.Gerry Badger is a critic, curator and photographer. His published books include Collecting Photography (2002) and John Gossage: Berlin in the Time of the Wall (2005) as well as books on Eugene Atget and Chris Killip (both published by Phaidon Press, 2001). He has curated a number of exhibitions, including `The Photographer as Printmaker' for the Arts Council of Great Britain (1981) and `Through the Looking Glass: Post-war British Photography' (1989) for the Barbican Arts Centre, London.

Review:

"It is a testament to the strength of [Parr's] argument, and to the quality of the titles he has compiled, that there is indeed a current reappraisal of the significance and value of photographer's books."-The Art Book "Fascinating... Beautifully illustrated with three dimensional covers and spreads - as with volume I - we really get an impression of the photo books as an 'object'... An essential guide to existing and budding collectors everywhere... By the time you reach the end if you weren't hooked on the photographic book already, you will be."-Laura Noble, London Independent Photography "[Parr's] international perspective is a major contribution to cultural history."-Ei8ht Photojournalism "Volume II of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's The Photobook: A History is even more opinionated, eccentric, and invaluable than the first volume."-Photograph "So many photography books are published these days, but here's one that makes sense of all the others."-The New York Times Book Review "To leaf through this book is to journey into the past; its images evoke our existence more poignantly than words can."-Library Journal
