This selection of photo-books spans 80 years of photography. There are portraits, nudes, animals and landscapes, industrial scenery, fashion, celebrities and many ordinary people, but no-one is really ordinary when they are being photographed by artists like Lewis Hine and Edouard Boubat. Some of these books are pushing the boundaries of art, while others record the lives of the poor and the powerful.

I had to include this groovy stylish book by the unknown photographer Billy Monk. Monk’s rich and varied career included safecracker, smuggler and Woolworths model, and he also had a spell in prison. Monk was a bouncer at the notorious Catacombs nightclub in the rough dock area of Cape Town in the 1960s when he came up with a scam to photograph the eclectic mix of customers and sell them the images. What Monk produced is one of the finest and most honest documents of the nightclub scene. A table filled with half-full bottles of Coca-Cola, identically dressed bouffant-haired twins and a kissing couple sitting in the detritus of this grimy club interior are remarkably seductive. The images are cool, intimate and honest and have a raw beauty. Monk’s images were discovered years later but tragically Monk would never see his work exhibited. In 1982 he was fatally shot in the chest on the way to the gallery.

My wife recently got herself Deep South by Sally Mann, which is nice if you like that kind of photography. If you’re more into the portraits, Star Trak by Anton Corbijn is a great bookBoth not books which tell you how to make these pictures, but it is always great to see what others have made. The “that’s really nice, I should try to make a picture like that!” approach can really help. Or even just to think on how a specific photo was made with regards to posing, lighting, backgrounds, etc. is a nice exercise. 85 months ago (permalink)

John Hedgecoe’s Complete Guide to Black and White Photography 86 months ago (permalink)

Images of Plademunt’s red blood cells follow portraits and landscapes. A giant snake’s head is followed by a car park filled with empty containers. An enormous dead fly sits opposite a slightly open door. The book has a sinister feel at times, the sequence of images often uncomfortable. It’s a book that pushes the boundaries of photographic tradition and practices, which kept me fascinated with each page I turned.

Monochromatic photography can be haunting (Walker Evans’ Great Depression photos of impoverished farmers, awe-inspiring (Ansel Adams’ images of Yosemite) or intimate (Michael Montford’s Charles Bukowski pictures).

I am completely blown away by this atlas of the surface of Mars. Who isn’t in awe of the universe? I still remember camping out the night of the first moonwalk. Xavier Barral has trawled through tens of thousands of images taken by the MRO probe Hirise camera that was launched into orbit by Nasa in 2005 to document the surface of this magical planet. Stunning, curious and abstract images of the planet’s surface reveal its three-billion-year history. Extraordinary images of the dunes of Noachis Terra and Velles Marineris canyons are breathtaking. This book is a perfect marriage of science and art. This is an extraordinary book, and takes photographs of the earth from above to a new level. This is a giant leap for a photo book and makes you wonder if perhaps there is someone out there photographing us.

I had often wondered why Alec Soth named his publishing house Little Brown Mushroom. John Cage, the composer, who died in 1992, was a keen mycologist and I learnt that Cage spent as much time identifying mushrooms as he did composing. This beautiful little book housed in a slipcase and sensitively edited by Soth combines 44 photos by William Gedney (1832-1989) and 22 of John Cage’s stories. Gedney’s archival images are intricately placed within the book with folds and layers indicative of the complexities of Cage’s music. Beautifully and thoughtfully designed, this book is an absolute delight. Since writing this Iris Garden has sold out, but find it if you can as it is a treat.

Jacob Aue Sobol’s iconic book Sabine, his documentary of his relationship with his Inuit girlfriend, is one of my favourite photo books of the past 10 years. In this new book the great Swedish photographer Petersen joins his protégé Sobol to produce a raw, gritty visual journey. Veins is split into two halves that share a grainy, stark, black and white, often grim reality. Both photographers share themes of nudity, animals, stark grimy interiors and the inhabitants from society’s fringe. This is a treat for lovers of a harsh aesthetic. Hats off to Dewi Lewis for publishing a genuinely important little book.

I was having a coffee with the photo aficionado Sean O’Hagan and he suggested I rush to my computer and buy a copy of The Absence of Myth, a dinky self-published book by Tereza Zelenkova. Its arrival was a delight. This young photographer (an ex-MA student at the Royal College of Art) beautifully combines texts and pictures. Inspired in part by Georges Bataille’s writings on surrealism, The Absence of Myth, published in 1945, Zelenkova’s dark visual references, such as Sigmund Freud’s chair, are confusing and complex but also a pleasure to consume. I will take the next few months fathoming it out.

Clare Strand is an artist who often works with everyday objects to produce complex conceptual imagery. Her latest book of table skirts works for me as I find in the evocative portraits both the sad and the comical. The staged images bring to mind a coffin, a table setting for the Last Supper or a magician’s table. I wonder what’s hidden beneath the skirts. The table skirts are shot from the same position, lit as icons. I can’t pretend to understand the complexity of the works but there is a dark resonance to the series that I find compelling.

I love the fact that not only is Sevincli’s book Good Dog made as a tribute to the legendary Daido Moryama’s 1971 image Stray Dog but it is also the locals’ nickname for the neighbourhood in Istanbul in which Sevincli lives. I love the scratched-up blown-out surface, the nearly dead cockroach, a punk’s shredded tights and a fly on a super-grainy window. It has stark, raw images with an aesthetic shared by Anders Peterson. The book is darkly seductive – even the paper surface is sexy to the touch – and has a dark narrative, which really drew me into its spell. The images are disquieting and I share Sevincli’s fears and questions of the environment he is photographing.

The pages of Spasibo, which means ‘thank you’ in Russian, is for me filled with ghosts. Davide Monteleone has travelled widely though the Caucasus since 2001 and clearly has a real understanding and connection to the region. This monograph examines the history of violence between Chechen separatists and Moscow and the impact it’s had on the structure of Chechnya both physically and emotionally. But the gloomy post conflict images are mixed with more upbeat moments of a new Chechnya, family parties, smart cars and portraits of beautiful young women on their wedding day. It’s a perfectly produced book filled with haunting, bleak images of darkness but it also shows the strength and endurance of these remarkable people.

The appeal of black and white photography in the visual arts is enduring. The term is rather misleading as the images are actually black, white and various shades of grey, but a powerful image without color can carry many messages.

It depends on what you are looking to do. Do you want to learn about every tool imaginable because there are many books like that. Or do you want to learn the creative process of why master photographers do what they do? Books on the latter issue are harder to find but they are out there.I agree, the Making of 40 Photographs is a GREAT book. Make sure you read it and absorb what Adams says about why he does what he does with a photograph. VERY important. VERY VERY important! Did I say that was VERY important??? It is!Another very useful book is “B&W Printing” by George Dewolfe (www.amazon.com/Digital-Masters-Printing-Creating-Photogra…)And:The Art Of Photography by Bruce Barnbaum (he is primarily a B&W photographer) (www.amazon.com/Art-Photography-Approach-Personal-Expressi…) 86 months ago (permalink)
