New York Times Top 10 Photo Books of 2013

Just added to the Decker Library collection.

Cover Art
Anna Fox - Anna Fox
Call Number: TR647 .F69 A4 2013 Quarto (can be borrowed)
ISBN: 9789053308035
Publication Date: 2013-11-01
I feel rather sheepish admitting that I’d never heard of the photographer Anna Fox before. I paged through “Resort 1” with delight. Its beautiful, large-format color photographs capture families vacationing in West Sussex at a Butlin’s resort, part of a 77-year-old British chain. They swim at Splash Waterworld, play in Billy’s Buddies toddlers’ play area, eat at Bar Rosso and enjoy a theatrical performance of “Bob the Builder.” Fox’s influences include the British documentary tradition as well as American New Colorist photographers. I also think there’s a similarity between her approach and that of the Swedish photographer Lars Tunbjork: ironic detachment with just the right amount of whimsy. — Joanna Milter

Cover Art
A Period of Juvenile Prosperity - Mike Brodie (Photographer)
Call Number: TR655 .B755 2012 Quarto (can be borrowed)
ISBN: 9781936611027
Publication Date: 2013-04-01
"A modern-day Kerouac with a camera. Or maybe Huck Finn. Brodie’s photographs of his cross-country rambles mostly by train-hopping, are epic, romantic, often gross and sometimes insane."

Cover Art
Viviane Sassen - Charlotte Cotton (Text by); Nanda Van Den Berg (Text by)
Call Number: TR679 .S27 A4 2013 Quarto (can be borrowed)
ISBN: 9783791348285
Publication Date: 2013-02-25
“In and Out of Fashion” brings together over a decade of daring pictures that use the conventions of fashion — its colors, shapes, textures and tropes — and sculpts them into dazzling compositions that are entirely Sassen’s own. As Charlotte Cotton puts it in her insightful essay accompanying the book, Sassen’s pictures are “timely and incendiary.”

Cover Art
Excerpts from Silver Meadows Works. Selections. - Todd Hido
Call Number: TR655 .H53 2013 Reference Folio (in-library use only)
Publication Date: 2013
"In his latest book, Todd Hido juxtaposes the images that have become his signature — rain-blurred winter-gray landscapes, suburban homes bathed in light from a single window, vulnerable portraits of women in anonymous, seedy motels — with his earlier work, personal snapshots and archival newspaper clippings. The combinations accentuate the sense of memory and longing. The pictures are reproduced in large scale, with gatefold spreads you can get lost in."

Cover Art
War/Photography - Anne Wilkes Tucker; Will Michels; Natalie Zelt; Liam Kennedy (Contribution by); Hilary Roberts (Contribution by); John Stauffer (Contribution by); Bodo Von Dewitz (Contribution by); Jeff Hunt (Contribution by); Natalie Zeldin (Contribution by)
Call Number: TR820.6 .T83 2012 Quarto (can be borrowed)
ISBN: 9780300177381
Publication Date: 2012-12-03
"The result of 10 years of research, this book, published to accompany an exhibition that first appeared at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, is the most comprehensive compilation of great war photography in recent memory."

Cover Art
Brandt Nudes - Bill Brandt; Lawrence Durrell (Preface by); Mark Haworth-Booth (Commentaries by)
Call Number: TR675 .B649 2013 Quarto (can be borrowed)
ISBN: 9780500970423
Publication Date: 2013-04-01
Brandt photographed his first nude in the 1930s and continued this work — obsessively exploring the female body — throughout his life. “Bill Brandt Nudes: A New Perspective” collects these pictures into one volume.

Cover Art
Mother - Elinor Carucci; Francine Prose (Foreword by)
Call Number: TR681 .C5 C368 2013 Quarto (can be borrowed)
ISBN: 9783791348155
Publication Date: 2013-09-09
"Beginning with her pregnancy and spanning nearly a decade, Elinor Carucci photographed herself and her family in a deeply personal series. Carucci takes the most familiar subject matter — a missing tooth, a first haircut, a brother and sister fighting — and infuses it with mystery and danger. Carucci photographs motherhood as we have never seen it before."

Cover Art
Bright Nights - Tod Seelie
Call Number: TR647 .S44 A4 2013 Quarto (can be borrowed)
ISBN: 9783791348551
Publication Date: 2013-10-25
Tod Seelie shows a gritty New York through images taken beginning in 1999. Seelie’s photographs explore underground parties, warehouses, vacant lots, street scenes and hideaways that make us think about all the subcultures that mostly remain unseen. — Gabrielle Plucknette

Cover Art
The Non-Conformists: Martin Parr - Martín Parr
Call Number: DA670 .H343 P37 2013 Stacks (can be borrowed)
ISBN: 9781597112451
Publication Date: 2013-10-31
Who knew Parr started his career taking thoughtful black-and-white pictures of small town life in England? “The Non-Conformists” was Parr’s first body of work after graduating from art school in 1975. But among the images of sheep grazing, grouse hunting and churchgoing, are glimpses of the humor we now so strongly associate with Parr. — Stacey Baker

Cover Art
Sketch of Paris - Engstrom Jh
Call Number: TR655 .E57 2013 CAGE (in-library use only)
ISBN: 9781597112536
Publication Date: 2013-10-31
"Twenty years of photos taken in Paris and, thankfully, nary a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower. Engstrom’s photos are more about the unseen Paris. Scary, tough, smoking-cigarettes-and-partying-hard Paris. This book is a sensory overload of full-bleed photos, mixing black and white with color effortlessly. It’s a diary of a life lived very, very . . . interestingly." — Amy Kellner

Cover Art
Mitch Epstein - Epstein Mitch
Call Number: TR726 .T7 E77 2013 Quarto (can be borrowed)
ISBN: 9783869305813
Publication Date: 2013-03-30
Epstein’s black-and-white photographs, taken with an 8-by-10 view camera, document New York’s great trees in their gnarled and twisted glory. (Disclosure: we loved these photographs so much that we published them in our 2012 Voyages Issue). The book’s elegant design showcases Epstein’s pictures, and his smart afterword relates them back to his definitive work on the energy industry in America. As he explains it, “I started to think about photographing something to honor, rather than mourn. . . .”
