Peter Funch shares the photo books that inspire his own practice:
“I buy many books: new, used, fictions, art – everything – and I really enjoy diving into my always expanding collection of books. My own library,” says Danish photographer Peter Funch. Back in October of 2017, we wrote about Peter’s extraordinary book 42nd and Vanderbilt in which he photographed the same people on the same street in New York for nine years.
The book is an incredible feat of patience and attentiveness with Peter focussing on details such as whether someone repeatedly carries their coffee with a napkin around it, instead of just whether they are carrying a cup of coffee. This process of working produced a unique and fascinating body of work – one that is particularly suited to the book format.As someone who clearly understands and appreciates the relationship we have with the printed page, we wanted to find out which books have made it into Peter’s personal collection and which, of these, rank in his top five.”
