The Photobook. A history. Volume 3
Phaidon’s iconic The Photobook: A History series has been hailed as "the most important contribution to the field since modern histories of photography began" (photo‐eye). In the third and final volume, legendary photographer Martin Parr and co‐author Gerry Badger bring the series fully up to date with a curated selection of more than 200 photobooks dating from World War II to the present day.
With the fresh eye to curation that fans of the series have come to appreciate, Parr and Badger present classics of the medium, such as Ryan McGinley’s The Kids are Alright and Paul Graham’s A Shimmer of Possibility, alongside new discoveries and lesser–known works, such as Tano d’Amico’s E Il ’77 and Mao Ishikawa’s Hot Nights in Camp Hansen.
Richly illustrated with more than 800 color photographs, The Photobook: A History, Volume III completes the series’ unprecedented visual timeline of photography in its published form.
