— 10×10 Photobooks

10×10 Publication

A photobook anthology that documents CLAP!, a traveling reading room exhibition of 130 contemporary Latin American Photobooks from 2000 to 2016. Organized by the nonprofit 10×10 Photobooks, the project launched at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh in May 2016, and traveled to the Aperture Foundation in New York City in November 2016, before concluding at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston in March 2017. Selected by 12 Latin American specialists (either in teams or individually), the books presented offer a range of recently published Latin American photobooks that are rarely seen or available outside the region. The selected books represent many of the most exciting innovations in Latin American photography and publications.

Copiously illustrated and indexed, the CLAP! publication provides full color spreads and detailed bibliographic information for all 130 photobooks included in the reading room. Designed by Ricardo Báez, CLAP! includes essays by Luis Weinstein and Joaquim Marçal F. de Andrade.

We were very grateful to Sebastiaan Hanekroot at Colour & Books for so inventively executing the production of our recent 10×10 Japanese Photobooks publication. Sebastian’s recent blog post, A Case in Binding, discusses the production challenges in realizing the elaborate French fold binding and associated gatefolds that designer Sybren Kuiper conceived for our book.
Sebastiaan’s ability to overcome what other book producers would see as obstacles, makes him stand out in the field.

Dankjewel Sebastiaan for such amazing work!

Photo books are now recognized as a separate art form, a subgenre of the larger universe of photography, and their importance has prompted a recent spate of books about photo books. 10×10 Japanese Photobooks” (10×10 Photobooks, 248 pages, $125) is a sushi counter of information about the Japanese photo books published in the last 60 years: 20 international specialists each highlight 10 titles, one of which is then given an expanded treatment—including enough pictures to give a sense of what the work is actually like. Photo books have been an important aspect of Japanese culture since the end of World War II, documenting the country’s seismic social transformations, and most of the country’s best known photographers— Daido Moriyama, Nobuyoshi Araki, Eikoh Hosoe, Hiroshi Sugimoto —are represented. The advantage of this extensive listing is that many little known artists are also on view. The present book is the second in the “10×10” series; it follows one on America photo books and more are planned.

—Mr. Meyers writes on photography for The Wall Street Journal.
