PhotoBook Journal – Issue 19

Welcome to our 19th Issue •

We have a another broad selection of photobook reviews this past month for your continuing consideration; social commentaries, urban landscape studies, environmental call to action and narratives about life, while we also found ourselves going to the dogs this month.

Meanwhile, the Covid-19 pandemic is getting worse and we hope for a new American administration that will actually address this critical health issue. For all Americans; please vote!

Please stay healthy and safe.
