The Photobook: A History Volume 2

The Photobook: A History Volume 2

- Following the critically acclaimed first volume, this is the eagerly anticipated second volume of the comprehensive illustrated history of the photobook
- Features over 200 photobooks from across the world, dating from Edouard-Denis Baldus's magnificent volume made for the Paris-Lyon-Mediterranee Railway Company of 1861 to Stephen Shore's American Surfaces of 2005
- Offers a fresh approach to photographic history, focusing on the development of photography in its published form and covering key artistic genres, with sections on The Artist's Photobook, The Company Photobook and Modern Life and the Photobook
- Broadly thematic in structure, each chapter features an introductory essay followed by detailed discussion of individual photobooks alongside images of book covers and spreads, which provide the central means of telling the history of the photobook


Following on from the success of the first volume, The Photobook: A History volume II brings the story of the Photobook fully up to date. It features publications by many well-known photographers ranging from Man Ray, Ed Ruscha and Andy Warhol to Christian Boltanski, Stephen Shore ad Sophie Calle by way of Bernd and Hilla Becher, Andreas Gursky and Lewis Baltz. Several innovative books by unknown photographers are also included, offering an opportunity to discover these overlooked works.

Photographers have been making photobooks – bound collections of their work – ever since the birth of photography in the early nineteenth century. While for some photographers the single print is considered the ultimate expression of their work, for many others the photobook is the most important vehicle for the widespread communication of their vision.

This second volume includes over 200 publications carefully selected by the renowned contemporary photographer, Martin Parr, whose passion for the photobook has made him a world authority on the subject, and the critic and curator Gerry Badger. All the books are accompanied by extensive commentaries by Badger and are illustrated as three-dimensional objects, providing a true sense of them as art works in their own right.

From Édouard-Denis Baldus’s magnificent volume for the Paris-Lyon-Méditerranée Railway Company of 1861 to Geert van Kesteren’s hard-hitting indictment of the war in Iraq, Why Mister, Why? of 2004, the authors have chosen what they believe to be the most artistically and culturally important photobooks ever made to create this comprehensive and visually exciting history of the medium.
