PhotoBook of the Year

Woman Go No'Gree by Gloria Oyarzabal

In Woman Go No’Gree by Gloria Oyarzabal (Editorial RM, Barcelona, and Images Vevey, Switzerland), winner of PhotoBook of the Year, the artist explores colonialism and white feminism in West Africa through the use of found imagery, archives, and her own photography. “Both substance and form of the book are compelling. The artist advances an excellent dialogue around deconstructing the idea of the gaze and ‘the other,’” states fi nal juror Damarice Amao. “The layout and the intelligent, inventive—even destabilizing—graphic design serve her purpose very well.” In this beautifully and thoughtfully crafted book, Oyarzabal challenges the viewer to engage with their own biases and assumptions.
