As big fans of photo-eye, we were honored to be invited to select 10 “best of 2013″ photobooks for their annual round-up.

Three people collaboratively selecting ten photobooks for a “best of 2013” list. Not an easy task. It requires a lot of discussion to see where there is overlap and where there is not. It can make for a bit of dysfunction. We started to notice that not just the process, but also many of the books on our list dealt with dysfunction in one way or another. A dysfunction that incites a discussion – much like our 10×10 practice. Here is our admittedly dysfunctional list for the best photobooks of 2013.

Read our selections on the photo-eye blog.

Here are a few of the books from our selection:

Igor Samolet. “be happy!”

Leiko Shiga Rasen Kaigan

Kosuke Okahara. “Vanishing Existence”

Pino Musi. “_08: 08 Operating Theatre”

Check out Ken Schles’ FOAM magazine write-up on 10×10. Thanks Ken. This is one of the best overviews of the project. Very honest and accurate. Schles shows our strengths and our areas for growth. We love that 10×10 is an ever-expanding and growing entity. The project was founded on the principle that there would always be more to learn.
