я привожу здесь только отбор Мартина Парра и сегодня, в течение дня, буду его переводить.

ВЫБОР МАРТИНА ПАРРА
Фотограф/ куратор из Бристоля

Stephen Gill - Coexistence(Сосуществование)
By Nobody Books, London

Стефан Джилл достоин возглавить список, благодаря своему исследованию жизни [технического] водоема в Люксембурге. Сначала он рассматривал пруд в микроскоп, затем наполнил водой емкости, погрузил туда свои камеры и сделал портреты местных жителей. Потом он напечатал эти портреты на бумаге, засунул их в пруд и дождался, пока вода не испортила изображение. Все это звучит дико, но работа Джилла действительно производит сильное впечатление.

Michael Schmidt - Lebensmittel (Продовольствие)
By Snoeck, Cologne

Отличная новая работа Шмидта раскрывает все тайны производства продуктов питания в Германии. Он нафотографировал очень неприятную смесь крупноплановых, цветных и черно-белых кадров, бросил это все в тигель и получил совершенно неотразимую книгу.


Billy Monk - Nightclub Photographs
By Dewi Lewis, Stockport

A great book about this recently rediscovered South African nightclub photographer who was murdered on his way to see his own exhibition in 1979.

Cristina De Middel – The Afronauts
By Sala Kursala, Cadiz

A wonderful first-time book from this Spanish photographer, who explores the notion of Zambia sending someone into space after achieving independence from Britain in 1963.

David Galjaard - Concresco
Self-published, Den Haag

Albania is covered in bunkers, a legacy of its paranoia during the Cold War. This book explores the many remaining bunkers and how they scar the contemporary landscape.

Pietro Mattioli - Two Thousand Light Years from Home
By Kodoji Press, Baden

A very stylish contribution to the recent trend of shooting images at night, the full flash giving the urban landscape a fresh and surreal look – another stylish design from Winfried Heininger.

Peter Marlow - The English Cathedral
By Merrell, London

Marlow toured all the British cathedrals and shot the interiors, using daylight to create this new typology. The detail of the images give this traditional pictorial subject matter a welcome new twist.

Daniel Naud? - Animal Farm
By Prestel, Munich

A collection of photographs of animals in South Africa. The main subjects are feral dogs, standing proud with their beaten-up hungry bodies, but full of dignity. Cows, horses and sheep also appear, but you’ll never forget the dogs.

Anne Sophie Merryman - Mrs Merryman’s Collection
By Mack, London

Michael Mack has had a good year, building on his catalogue of elegant photobooks. This extraordinary collection of the weirdest, most intriguing, collection of cards was supposedly gathered by Mrs Merrymen and presented by her granddaughters. However, the book does deliver a final cunning twist, which is – quite literally – sewn into the final pages.

Luciano Rigolini - Surrogates
By Mus?e de l’Elys?e, Lausanne

Sam Stourdz?, the new director of the Mus?e de l’Elys?e, has emerged as an excellent champion of vernacular photography. In a very crowded field, it will be hard to beat this wonderful collection of car parts, found for sale on eBay by Rigolini. A great production just gives the book the final boost.
