Paul Oliver is the Chair of the Master's course in International Studies in Vernacular Architecture at the School of Architecture, Oxford Brookes University.Review:
'Phaidon's ground-breaking 55 series once again fulfils its self-set brief, by bringing us articulate and tempting introductions to the work of two photographers whose work is not very well-known in the UK.' Simon James, Royal Photographic Society Journal 'In a brave attempt to match Penguin's success in finding a new market for fiction in the 1930s, Phaidon have put together boxed sets with themes including 'Experimental', 'Masters', '5 Great Documentary Photographers', and of course 'Pioneers' ... Phaidon have come up with a great new concept for the photography book; and as a series of skilfully-produced, pocket-sized books [...] they do attempt to address key moments in photographic history and innovation.'
