Photobooks of 2017: 10×10 Photobooks Team
Multiple viewpoints are essential components in 10×10 Photobooks’ activities and approaches within the photobook community. Managed by three individuals who come from three different generations and three distinct photography and photobook aesthetics, 10×10’s process of making a “best of” list is an opportunity to embrace differing perspectives. Sometimes there is consensus on a photobook and sometimes completely divergent opinions. But as with any healthy discussion, differing viewpoints call for careful listening, mutual respect and open minds. In this spirit of diverse perspectives, 10×10 Photobooks presents its “Best Photobooks of 2017” list.
