Bill Burke's selection of important PhotoBooks Photography

Bill Burke teaches a class at the Museum School that deals with the production of a photographic books and sequencing of images. Bill has experience with this, having produced a number of incredibly powerful and important photography books of his own, namely I Want to Take Picture (1987, reissued in 2007), Portraits (1987) and Mine Fields (1995).

At the beginning of this semester’s class, he handed out a list of about 50 photo books for everyone to look at and brought in some great stuff from his collection (including a 1st edition copy of Walker Evan’s Many Are Called). With just a quick glance at the list I could identify Bill’s photographic bias but, nonetheless, it’s an excellent selection that includes a few books I’ve never seen. I recommend sitting down with any of these if you find the opportunity. With tanks to SHANE LAVALETTE
