The Photobookstore has asked publishers, photographers, booksellers, writers and collectors to share some of their photobook highlights of the year.
If your interested in Photobooks Bob Books is a great site, where you can create and print your own Photobooks online with video tutorials to help you get started.
I’m absolutely in love with Hensons work!!! His work is very theatrical, the style he uses is very dark almost painting like, very dramatic.
The careful use of light that he uses creates such beautiful images, i recently watched an interview with bill and he said,
“art is an artifist, it comes down to What is in your imagination! It comes down to how you feel about things, not nessarly understanding it because meaning comes from feeling not the other way round”. 🖤
There are three major categories:
Photobook of the year
Photography Catalogue of the year.

Monsanto: A photographic investigation by Mathieu Asselin. Monsanto has had a rapid rise and a more than colourful history marked by coverups and scandals: dioxins in PCB coolants, genetically modified products such as the bovine growth hormone Posilac and the production of the defoliant Agent Orange. The company is still highly controversial, irritating scientists, environmental organisations and human rights associations and acting in a way that makes people doubt the harmlessness of its products. As a manufacturer of food and animal feed, seeds and chemical products, Monsanto is relentlessly developing and marketing new technologies.
