2017 Nomination (not yet selected): 
The authors, a husband and wife team, bring to this book about the "partnership" of two people whose lives and work are deeply entwined a sense of what collaboration is all about and how it impacts relationships and identities. The book looks at the influence both subjects had on the world of photography, how they attempted to sway the public about international events and the risks they took to tell the events that took place before their eyes. The Spanish Civil War is an important subject in this book as is the impact of photojournalism. It is also a strong depiction of a woman who would not be deterred and while a companion of a talented man, developed her own talent and insisted on her own work and recognition. A book with broad appeal and lots to excite further exploration. (Ten to Fourteen)
