Review:

'BLINK. is a wonderful book ... a photographic roller-coaster ride on a global scale ... adventurous ... This is what BLINK. is all about, going from one genre to another, from one unexpected discovery to another: a photographic surprise party.' (Free-Eye) 'Beautifully structured, cool and calm in its appearance ... a discreetly paced book full of rigour.' (Design Week) 'A truly international mix which makes an interesting and useful compendium of work.' (Creative Review) 'Phaidon's epic Blink is the year's finest compilation.' (Wallpaper*) 'A treasure-trove of photography.' (Frame, The Netherlands) 'Due to the diversity of their specialisations and nationalities, the photographers included cover a wide range of styles, from documentary to fashion.' (The Art Newspaper) 'Magnificent ... gives as broad a picture of life on Planet Earth as it is possible to imagine.' (Sunday Business Post) 'When you have seen a few of these photographs, your eyes feel rinsed. The world looks more like a movie, and you don't want to miss it.' (The Times) 'Who are the most noteworthy image-makers of today? Whose work will we be clamoring for tomorrow? Look for the answers in the new publication, Blink. This 480-page rectangular book, with the neat, baby blue, barcode-style cover, features 100 of the most exciting contemporary photographers, selected by 10 international critics, curators, and creative directors. It is a not-to-be-missed who's who hot list, presenting talent in all styles of contemporary photography - from fashion, to art, photojournalism to digital.' (Picture) 'The international coverage is impressive. So is the quality of the photography, which is as visually stunning as it is stylistically diverse ... Blink is a feast of imagery that proves, with ardor and style, that the world of contemporary photography is extensive, vibrant and incredibly diverse.' (Planet) ' Blink's very ambitious goal is to span the breadth of what photography is today, and there is something for everyone ... Blink is more analagous to a sourcebook than an exhibition - a place to start, a place to learn what is out there and what it looks like.' (Photo District News) 'An exhibition book that provides an up-to-the-minute, global view of contemporary photography. All styles of photography are represented - from fashion to art, from photojournalism to digital photography. An authoritative reference and source of inspiration for professionals and newcomers alike, Blink enables readers to stay one step ahead of emerging trends in the fast-changing world of photography.' (STEP Inside Design) 'An ambitious survey of 100 contemporary lensmen and women whose photography ranges from fashion and nature to journalism and digital. Also a handy guide, it expresses the diversity and complexity of the medium.' (City) 'This chunky book is recommended for anyone who wants to stay current with the many permutations in the field of contemporary photography, from fashion to photojournalism to everything in between ... Blink is generously illustrated and supplemented with essays by 10 additional writers and biographical information about each photographer ... Contrary to its title, Blink is a book that invites prolonged surfing.' (The Miami Herald) 'Substantial in size, the book simply and beautifully highlights the pictures, virtually eliminating the need for words.' (I.D.)
