The lists of best photobooks for the year have started to appear.... here are a few links that are worth a look....
From the guardian, Sean O'Hagan On Photography HERE
From blogger Marc Feustel at eye curious HERE
From Alec Soth's LITTLE BROWN MUSHROOM BLOG HERE
Both Sean O'Hagan and Alec Soth have nominated Christian Patterson's Redheaded Peckerwood. O'Hagan describes it as "ambiguous and unsettling" and Soth says of it "like an investigator’s dossier in the age of Google Images." Certainly a book near the top of my best list for the year.
Rinko Kawauchi's Illuminance also gets a double mention. O'Hagan says, "a mix of intimacy and deceptively casual observation holds sway and the end results remain singularly beautiful." I've not seen this book yet but knowing Rinko's work I'm sure it will not disappoint.
