    1. Less Américains by Mishka Henner
    He trashes Robert Frank, need we say more? Worst photo book of 2013. Let’s hope for Less Henner in 2014.

    2. Scrap Book by Fred Free
    This is one of the worst photo books of 2013 because it’s filled with dated pictures of random chairs, canned fruit and one clipping which even mentions “Troll Clothes”. Nobody needs to see this stuff. That you can get it covered in your choice of four sickeningly garish colors makes this a no-brainer worst list candidate. Scrap Book? Try Crap Book.

    3. Portraits by Andreas Schmidt
    Portraits by Andreas Schmidt is one of the worst photo books of 2013 because it does not feature 26 portraits of various men of great distinction but 26 boring pictures of Hugh Grant who is not even a real man because he has no chest hair.

    4. NFS: Need for Speed/Not for Sale by Jonathan Lewis
    This book is currently priced at £5036.99 on Blurb’s website and it is not even a limited edition! What is more he offers almost no explanation for this seemingly random collection of images. Either this artist is extremely foolish, extremely arrogant, or both.

    5. Details from the Least Popular by Heidi Neilson
    Tedious! How could the dullest parts of boring images from the Hubble Space Telescope possibly be interesting? Is this meant to be a sleep aid?

    6. Las Meninas by Paul Soulellis
    Calls himself an artist and doesn’t even use a camera. Steals everything from Google.

    7. Monument to the Unknown Heroes by Tanja Lažetić
    Monument to the Unknown Heroes by Tanja Lažetić will just remain that. Unknown. It is full of basic mistakes. Grainy pictures. Blank pages. And some pictures are even printed twice or even three times. Particularly unexceptional.

    8. The Last Resort (The Bootleg) by Hermann Zschiegner
    The Last Resort (The Bootleg) by Hermann Zschiegner is the last book I would buy. Did Zschiegner not know that the original book is in colour? And what are all those silly hands doing there? It is an insult to the Gods of photobooks, Martin Parr and Gerry Badger.

    9. How The West Was Won. Copyright Applied For. by David Schulz
    How to not lose your money. By not buying How The West Was Won. Copyright Applied For by David Schulz. Comprised of mainly postcards, contracts, meeting minutes, advertising agency reports, newspaper clippings, scripts, scripting notes, and correspondences, it only contains a few photographs and they are old. Oh yeah, and some stupid Japanese poems that don’t make sense.

    10. Every Day a New Photo Book by Wil van Iersel
    Wil van Iersel makes a new book every day for a whole month every year. POD should have never been invented. This month his topic is food. His books are as good as eating 30 cheeseburgers from McDonald’s in one go.
