Photobook award 2012

The annual Photobook festival, taking place in Paris this year, is coming up shortly.  They have recently let us know who has nominated which book for commendation on the Photobook award website.  There are no winners, and nominations are typically diverse - with only four titles (as far as I can see) getting more than one nomination.

Nico Krebs & Taiyo Onorato's As long as it photographs / It must be a camera has tickled three people's fancies; and Valerio Spada's Gomorrah Girl gets two nominations, as does Watabe Yukichi's A Criminal Investigation and Peng Yanghun and Chen Jiaojiao's Pass it On.

I'm glad to see a few titles that we have in stock are on the list: Magnum's gigantic Contact sheets, Julian Baron's Censura (currently in cataloguing) and a book by Daniel Blaufuks - Terezin.
