VOGUE Australia - - VIEWPOINT -

1. VILLE DE CALAIS: HENK WILDSCHUT (GWINZEGAL, 2017)

“This book has been a huge touch-point for me. It cov­ers the set­tle­ments of the Calais ‘Jun­gle’ mi­grant camp in France, which I’d been data map­ping over the six months of its forced evac­u­a­tion, in my last big project. Not only is it a bril­liant tes­ta­ment to the site and its res­i­dents, but it’s also an in­valu­able one-stop ref­er­ence to what was there be­fore, since I was work­ing in the now empty land.”

2. PATTI SMITH: CAM­ERA SOLO (YALE UNI­VER­SITY PRESS, 2011)

“Me­mories and to­kens, ar­ranged in Smith’s own world, across a mil­lion cities. It makes liv­ing like I have been a lit­tle less lonely when you think of women like Smith car­ry­ing her cam­era, po­ems and note­books over decades, com­bin­ing her pho­tos and writ­ing all into one vi­sion.”

3. DISOBEDIEN­T BOD­IES: JW AN­DER­SON AT THE HEP­WORTH WAKE­FIELD (IN OTHER WORDS, 2017) BY J.W. AN­DER­SON

“This book is so smart, el­e­gant and funny. It’s such a nat­u­ral cross­over be­tween fash­ion and art, which I’ve al­ways sensed in J.W. An­der­son’s fash­ion, too. Ev­ery­thing about the beat of im­ages, con­trasts and empty spa­ces is re­ally play­ful and builds these won­der­ful links and worlds.”

4. LIV­ING (YVON LAMBERT, 1998) BY JENNY HOLZER

“Ev­ery­thing about this book is a per­fect ex­pe­ri­ence of words: the di­men­sions, the trans­par­ent pages, and the or­der. I’ve taken to pick­ing up this book, read­ing a sin­gle page and think­ing about it for the rest of the day.”

5. LOOK­ING FOR LOVE ON THE LEFT BANK: ED VAN DER ELSKEN (AMAN IMAN PUB­LISH­ING, 2013)

“The drafts and process of Ed van der Elsken’s sem­i­nal Love on the Left Bank (1954) are re­vealed on these pages. The orig­i­nal work set up some of the vis­ual lan­guage of the photo books that we know to­day. I pre­fer this ver­sion: messy, B-rolls, writ­ing, ed­its and scratches. It feels much closer to the chaotic beat­nik Paris Rive Gauche life that he was shoot­ing.”

6. AFGHANISTA­N: 0 RH (MOUSSE PUB­LISH­ING, 2018)

BY GIO­VANNA SILVA

“I’ve al­ways seen this book as a re­ally amaz­ing, frag­mented piece of pho­to­jour­nal­ism. It shows the mil­i­tary per­spec­tive of Afghanista­n: from cars, up high, through dusty win­dows, from trucks. It’s claus­tro­pho­bic and to­tally de­tached from place.”

7. DREAM­ING GE­OR­GIA (ROCKIN’ ON INC, 1994) BY KURT MARKUS

“Dream­ing Ge­or­gia is a con­stant ref­er­ence for me. These are pho­tographs by Kurt Markus taken of model Cyn­thia An­to­nio, some­times clothed, some­times nude. It feels like a love let­ter to her, but also to Al­fred Stieglitz’s pho­tographs of Ge­or­gia O’Ke­effe in New Mex­ico and to their love.”
