TitlePhotobook Review: Maud Sulter: Passion
TypeBook review
AuthorsKempadoo, R.
Abstract

Guest Editor Deborah Willis leads a survey of photobooks by Black artists, creating the scaffolding for future research and study. In her own studies and published works, Willis has laid the groundwork for the history of Black photographers as they established “a visual language of ‘testifying’ about their individual and collective experiences.” This issue offers an annotated bibliography of photobooks by African American artists and, more broadly, artists of the African Diaspora.

For this issue, Kempadoo reviews the book Maud Sulter: Passion (Altitude Editions, 2015) that was posthumously published by Deborah Cherry to accompany the exhibition at Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow.
