PDN Photo Annual 2015 ANNOUNCES WINNERS

PDN 2015 Finalists

Congratulations to the finalists in this year’s PDN Photo Annual! A whopping three Radius Books won in the Photobook category:

Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb won for their book, Memory CityIn an elegiac look at Rochester, New York, Memory City is a mediation on film, memory, time and the city itself. Shot in both digital and analog formats, the photographs are joined by quotes from famous writers and thinkers who have been connected to Rochester.

Laura Letinksy won for her book, Ill Form & Void Full. In this serene monograph, Letinsky creates references to the table from existing photographs in home and lifestyle magazines, her old work, the art of friends and actual objects. Her process shows how ideas about the private sphere and their manifestation in our lives are predicated upon what has come before—that is, perception itself is a construct.

Michael Light won for his book Lake Las Vegas/Black Mountain. In Light’s third aerial survey published by Radius Books, the photographer focuses on Nevada, formerly the fastest-growing state in America until the 2008 recession. Light hovers intimately over the topography of two residential areas, both never fully realized and in disrepair: Lake Las Vegas, a lifestyle resort built around a former sewage swamp, and the nearby Black Mountain community, where a quarter-billion dollars was spent on moving earth that has lain dormant for the past six years.

TIME LightBox presents a special preview of the season’s best photography books and has chosen three Radius Books photographers Michael Light, Julie Blackmon, and Laura Letinsky for their inspired forthcoming monographs. “These photo books, lovingly designed and meticulously edited, are a rare treat in a time when photography is all-too-often relegated to selfies and snapshots, and offer an opportunity to truly indulge in the unfettered beauty of a well-made book.” (more..)
