Photobooks 2016 - a list of the lists

Zzyzx – Gregory Halpern
Viory Schellekens is a Dutch documentary photographer whose work investigates social, political and economic issues. 
When not making photographs Schellekens has assembled the ultimate in photobook lists for 2016. A daunting task. 

Schellekens writes: Are you sure you're done with 2016?
In the last two months 162 different photographers, curators, collectors, bloggers, etcetera chose 546 photobooks as the most interesting, the best and their favourite books. They are collected in a meta-list. Here you can check out the top 140 of it. I added links to videos or articles about the books.

In this post I've only included those books that received 10 selections or more. To see the complete list you can go to this facebook link HERE.
And while you're at it you can check out Viory Schellekens work on her website HERE. It's well worth a look.
