← Back to Photobooks of the Year

by Bindi Vora, Curatorial Project Manager, Autograph

From the classics published year on year, to new experimental books on photography, I have put together an eclectic selection of photo books all produced by women in 2019. This is by no means a concise list or ‘top’ list – these are simply some of the books I carry with me into 2020. Each one offers a moment to stand still, reflect on and engage with a myriad of subjects, narratives, artistic perspectives and photographic processes, all of which resonate with me and are a source of inspiration.
