The amazing flowering of the Dutch photobook (published in 2012)


Volkskrant komt met uitgebreid overzicht fotoboeken

Het katern V van de Volkskrant pakt vandaag uit met een overzicht in acht pagina’s van de dit jaar tot nu toe verschenen fotoboeken. Een groot aantal wordt uitgelicht en voorzien van toelichting door de maker, waaronder ook oplages en productiekosten.

In de verantwoording lezen we: ‘V presenteert (bijna) alle Nederlandse fotoboeken die tot en met november 2012 zijn verschenen.’
Dat bijna klopt, want we missen in elk geval heel erg de twee bijzondere boeken met werk van Peter Martens die post editions voor en na de zomer uitgaf: Few loving voices en American Testimony.



En ook het overzicht Own van Erwin Olaf komt niet in het verhaal voor.

The Dutch PhotobookThe Dutch Photobook describes the relatively recent history of the famed Dutch photobook. Editors Rik Suermondt and Frits Gierstberg chose over 120 of the most significant Dutch photobooks and placed them in the context of developments in photography and society.
The post-Second World War Dutch photobook is unique because of the long tradition of graphic designers and photographers working closely together. It is highly prized abroad, and many photobooks have become part of the collections of museums and private collectors. This book shows the immense variety and allure of the Dutch photobook and makes it accessible to a broad audience.
Six chapters, organized both thematically and chronologically, examine company photobooks, photobooks about youth culture, landscape books, city books, travelogues and autonomous photobooks. For each theme, the 20 most noteworthy books are described and represented by gorgeous illustrations of their covers and parts of their contents.
Despite - or perhaps because - the digitization of photography, the traditional medium of the photo book is (still) enormously popular amongst contemporary photographers. They see the book as the ideal form to present their work and to tell their story. The Dutch photo book has built over the years a certain reputation. The close collaboration between graphic designers and photographers determined in the period after 1945 the quality of the Dutch photo books. Gerry Badger wrote: ": ‘One of the most active photobook cultures in the postwar years was Holland, rivalling and perhaps exceeding even France.”

Let Us Now Praise Famous Photo Albums: Walker Evans’ Albums for Let Us Now Praise Famous Men



Floyd Burroughs, Sharecropper. Volume 1. Photograph by Walker Evans. http://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/2003656560/
During the summer of 1936, Walker Evans, a preeminent photo documentarian of the New Deal, worked with writer James Agee on a project originally intended for Fortune magazine about the devastating effects of economic conditions on white tenant farmers. Agee and Evans spent eight weeks that summer researching their assignment, mainly among three white sharecropping families mired in desperate poverty in Hale County and Perry County, Alabama. Special photo albums preserved in the Prints & Photographs Division  represent the photographic essence of what later appeared as the landmark  book Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, published first in 1941.

Allie Mae Burroughs. Volume 1. Photograph by Walker Evans. http://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/2003656560/
The stark, stunning black-and-white photographs within these two albums show the family members, farms, and houses of the three families and include portraits, details of rooms and belongings, cotton, activities such as washing clothes, stores in the vicinity, meeting house, and Sunday singing.
