Well, it is that time of year and I need to send my list into Santa before his shop gets to busy.

Any suggestions on good photo books this year?

Larry Sultan:Here and Home
Alec Soth: Gathering Leaves
Ron Jude: Lago
Ben Huff: The Last Road North
Emmet Gowin: Changing the Earth
Stephen Shore: Uncommon Places
Joel Sternfeld: American Prospects
Sally Mann :Hold Still --one of my favorites. It turns out Sally Mann is an incredible writer as well as photographer.

I would like to suggest two books that many of you may have never seen, they are outside the usual "canon" of well-known photographers:
1) Whispered Prayers: Portraits and Prose of Tibetans in Exile by Stephen R. Harrison - the title is self-explanatory, but all the photographs were made with a Canham 7x17, hardly the usual travel camera for trips to exotic places, and
2) Three Gorges by Bill Zorn - a travelogue through the region of China eventually flooded by the Three Gorges Dam Project; again all of the photographs were taken in B&W with large format cameras

Do some googling to see if they may interest you, I have both and enjoy them very much.

Thanks Peter, I have Three Gorges but I think most of those were made in medium format (not that it matters). I will check out the other one as that is new to me.

Literally anything from Lodima Press.

I would also add the last Sally Mann's book; Remembered Light; Cy Twombly in Lexington. Very nice and smooth book.

Pretty much *any* Sally Mann book is worth having, IMNSHO. Agreed about Hold Still, and Treasured Lands (already have both of those)

If you are not adverse to color work, Charles Cramer's "Yosemite" recently published by Triplekite in UK looks astonishing. A fine LF eye using mostly 4x5 (perhaps some recent digital).

Another from the same publisher which I enjoy is Hans Strand's aerial images of Iceland using Hasselblad digital, "Above and Below".

Both are well produced and high quality products.

Merry Xmas.

If you shoot B&W, Way Beyond Monochrome by Ralph Lambrecht and Chris Woodhouse. If Santa doesn't deliver, buy it!

The book of the year for me. I just got it.

Not only are the images wonderful, but Walter Cronkite's with Mr. Sexton's words are prescient.

Todd Hido just released his mid-career survey, Intimate Distance. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The print & production quality of the book is very high, too.
