In The Press, Recently: Lists of PHOTO BOOKS OF THE YEAR

I’m back home in Tucson after our final “PDN On The Road” Seminar, five cities flew past us. I learned so much this fall, met so many great people and saw so much great work. It was great to spend so much time with my fellow core presenters Meg Asaro, Michael Britt, Patrick Donehue, Jeanine Fijol, Stephen Johnson, Ed Kashi, Aaron Schindler, Brian Storm and Debra Weiss, and organizers Photo District News and the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. I’m a bit behind on bringing my readers links to what is happening, so check these things out:

NEWSWEEK’s recent article “Is Photography Dead?” by Peter Plagens (December 10, 2007 issue) has been the subject of much discussion in the blogs (and in person). Check it out.


A number of publications have released their Photography Books of the Year lists:

Wall Street Journal by Richard B. Woodward (look soon, links go down after a week)

PDN has posted selections from its staffers, as has American Photo.
Shutterbug has split its list into two areas:

PHOTO books of the year and DIGITAL books of the year

And – don’t miss these interesting lists from UK publications:

The Guardian (UK) by Prudence Hone

The Sunday Times (UK) by Martin Parr

The Independent (UK) by Charles Darwent

newly added 12/19, another UK list from The Telegraph
