About Claxton Projects

Photography books we’ve found, rediscovered & love.

The Claxton Projects website is a curated selection of contemporary and vintage photography books. This archive includes books by some of photography’s most distinguished, imaginative and inventive artists and is intended to provide an introduction to new collectors, whilst highlighting the occasional overlooked title to the more seasoned photography book enthusiast. Above all else, Claxton Projects is a celebration of great photography books and the wonderful images within.
