David Chancellor’s Book List
18 December 2012
Exclusively for Fauna & Flora, David Chancellor has listed some of his favourite photobooks.
“I draw inspiration from many books, and miss them hugely whilst I’m away. Without doubt, currently my favourite is ‘Bagara’ by Ed van der Elsken. It was given to me by the designer Victor Levie that I worked with on ‘Hunters’ in Amsterdam. I am also extremely interested in the work of Peter Beard, his books ‘End of the Game’ and ‘Longing for Darkness’. David Goldblatt… his earlier work is extraordinary. I am currently looking at ‘Some Afrikaaners Revisited’ and ‘Photographs’. (I also like) Roger Ballen’s ‘Outland’, ‘River of No Return’ by Laura McPhee, ‘Dead Eagle Trail’ by Jane Hilton, Joel Sternfeld’s ‘Oxbow Archive’ and many others.”
