It has become a tradition: if it’s December, it’s books. Many books. Here’s a list of what we looked at, spoke about, thought about (no-one said they had to be about photography):
Mick Williamson: some memorials
Maurice Sendak: Where the Wild Things Are
Edward Weston: Daybooks
Edward Lucie-Smith: Movements in Art Since 1945
Annie Leibovitz at Work
Alan Trachtenberg (ed): Classic Essays in Photography
Mary Warner Marien: Photography: a Cultural History
David Hurn: 1960s
Gross & Shapiro: The Tao of Photography
Mark Haworth-Booth: Camille Silvy: River Scene, France
Ian Walker: City Gorged with Dreams: Surrealism and documentary photography in inter-war Paris
Mark Power: The Shipping Forecast
Gregory Eisler: Portraits.
They came in all shapes and sizes though none would stun an ox. Next year.
