Favorite Photobooks 2022


36 curators, artists, editors and photography experts share their personal favorite photobooks from 2022 — a delightfully diverse list of great recommendations


The Phoenician Collapse published by Fotoevidence and Universidad de San Jorge

I must admit some bias here, as Diego is a photographer I have known and worked with for years, and many of the images in this book were made on assignment for The New York Times. But it was really wonderful to see his beautiful, scrupulous documentation of the downward spiral of Lebanon collected and artfully edited into a photo book by Sarah Leen.
Diego, a Spaniard, moved to Lebanon from Pakistan in 2014 and has truly captured the mood and atmosphere of a country struggling with the twin perils of ineffective government and crumbling infrastructure; and of a proud people who find themselves in extraordinarily difficult circumstances. Michelle McNally, the former Director of Photography at The Times, used to tell photographers “Don’t show me what a place looks like. Show me what it feels like.” I’ve internalized that advice, and now regularly give it to photographers that I work with, but this is something that no editor needed to tell Diego. It’s what he’s done here so magnificently — show us what it feels like to live in modern Lebanon.

-Craig Allen, Senior Photo Editor, International Desk, The New York Times
