Format: Hardcover
If you are a fan of Fotografía Pública: Photography in Print 1919-1939 (2000), Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century (2001), The Photobook: A History, Vol. 1 (2004), The Photobook: A History - Volume 2 (2006), Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 70s (2009), and Swiss Photobooks from 1927 to the Present (2011), you'll like this informative and beautifully-printed book.

It focuses on 150 photography books that were created by photographers, designers, and writers who reside in Latin America and that were published between 1921 and 2009. The chapter titles are "Introduction," "A Book for the Twentieth Century," "Word and Image," "The City and the Book," "The Forgotten Ones" (on oppressed people, psychiatric hospitals, etc.), "Artists' Photobooks," "The Image as Text," "Turbulent Times," "Color," "and Contemporary Photobooks." There's a nice Appendix on six book designers (important for photobooks, but not discussed much in books on photobooks), as well as a bibliography listing other major books by the photographers mentioned.

Must have for people interested in Latin American photography. Although the book is incomplete in some areas it covers the most important photo books to come out in the region.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As the editors admit, this book has been made following the successes of Martin Parr`s The Photobook 1 + 2 . Out came a necessary and well done volume describing 150 books by native or resident latin american photographers.
It demonstrates an astonishing similarity of photographic approaches to social, artistic and political questions in Europe or in South America. What is chique and a la mode seems to be pandemic.
To the lover and collector of photographic books it gives lovely ideas for further search and hunting.
