Kassel Photobook Award 2010

There were 20 nominated titles in the Photobook Award at the 3rd International Photobook Festival in Kassel, Germany - with only two titles getting more than one nomination.

The nominated books, along with a statement from the person nominating them, are viewable in the catalogue below.

There is no overall winner. However, only one book got three nominations - Black passport by Stanley Green, published by Aperture. One other title got more than one nomination - Shannon Ebner's The sun as error, published  by Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

I have ordered copies of both of these for the library. Also, we already have some of the titles featured in stock:

Robert Adams. What we bought - the new world : scenes from the Denver metropolitan area, 1970-1974. Yale University Art Gallery

Robert Adams. Summer nights, walking : along the Colorado front range, 1976-1982. Aperture.

Sophie Ristelhueber. Operations. Thames and Hudson.

Gerhard Richter. Overpainted photographs. Hatje Cantz.
