The photobook review [n.18]
edição Lesley A. Martin e Deborah Willis
#018 – Fall 2020
Guest Editor Deborah Willis leads a survey of photobooks by Black artists, creating the scaffolding for future research and study. In her own studies and published works, Willis has laid the groundwork for the history of Black photographers as they established “a visual language of ‘testifying’ about their individual and collective experiences.” This issue will extend that exploration to the way those testimonial and expressive works have appeared as photobooks or other printed publications. Starting with Roy DeCarava and Langston Hughes’s The Sweet Flypaper of Life, published in 1955, and canvassing works by contemporary photographers and publishers, this issue offers an annotated bibliography of photobooks by African American artists and, more broadly, artists of the African Diaspora.
