Phaidon’s iconic The Photobook: A History series has been hailed as "the most important contribution to the field since modern histories of photography began" (photo–eye). In the third and final volume, legendary photographer Martin Parr and co–author Gerry Badger bring the series fully up to date with a curated selection of more than 200 photobooks dating from World War II to the present day.
With the fresh eye to curation that fans of the series have come to appreciate, Parr and Badger present classics of the medium, such as Ryan McGinley’s The Kids are Alright and Paul Graham’s A Shimmer of Possibility, alongside new discoveries and lesser–known works, such as Tano d’Amico’s E Il ’77 and Mao Ishikawa’s Hot Nights in Camp Hansen.
Richly illustrated with more than 800 color photographs, The Photobook: A History, Volume III completes the series’ unprecedented visual timeline of photography in its published form.

PHOTOGRAPHS: COLLECTIONS. The third volume in an authoritative and comprehensive series, The Photobook: A History volume III provides a unique perspective on the story of contemporary photography through the genre of the photobook. Continuing in the vein of the first two volumes, Volume III is a study of the major trends and movements that have shaped the photobook genre globally since the birth of photography in the early nineteenth century. Volume III pays particular attention to photobooks published after World War II, covering contemporary themes of modern life, from diaristic photography of place and people to twentieth-century propaganda books and some of the finest works to emerge from the recent self-publishing boom. The Photobook volumes represent a valuable catalogue of rare and important photobooks, and since Phaidon published Volume I in 2004, are now regarded by academics, students and photobook bibliophiles as the definitive works on this subject.
