100 photobooks about surveillance photography

The book Surveillance Index / Edition One was published in 2016 as the catalogue of the exhibition Public, Private, Secret at the ICP (International Center of Photography) in New York. This exhibition, based on the photobook collection of entrepreneur and activist Mark Ghuneim, is presented under the name Surveillance Index during the winter 2018 at Le BAL in Paris. The texts are in English only.

This catalogue lists, sorted following different variables (publication year, photographer, size, etc.), one hundred photobooks about surveillance photography in the public and private spaces.

The book includes a two-sided poster with a reproduction of a double-spread of each book in the exhibition, we are adding a second poster, published by Le BAL for the Paris exhibition; the latter including a short presentation in French of the exhibition (and of the recurring theme of "Performing Books" that will produce one exhibition at Le BAL every January) and on the main image a setup of a dozen photobooks included in the exhibition tagged with their respective number in the index.
