The Photobook: A History Volume III

The book: What We Wear is included in The Photobook: A History Volume III by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. This third volume brings the history of the photobook up to date, with specific exploration of postwar and contemporary examples. The book is divided into 9 thematic chapters, each featuring general introductory text providing background information and highlighting the dominant political and artistic influences on the photobook in the period, followed by more detailed discussion of the individual photobooks. The introductory chapter texts are followed by spreads and images from over 200 books, which provide the central means of telling the history of the photobook. Chosen by Parr and Badger, these illustrations show the most artistically and culturally important photobooks in three dimensions, with the cover or jacket and a selection of spreads from the book shown.
