If you're a keen photographer, it's sometimes nice to get a different perspective on the discipline while enjoying a great work of fiction. So we're always on the lookout for new novels focused around photographers, and here's one we're particularly excited about, because it's just won the Booker Prize!

The Booker Prize is the leading literary award in the English speaking world, and previous winners include The Testaments by Margaret Atwood (the sequel to The Handmaid's Tale), Schindler's Ark by Thomas Keneally (which was filmed as Schindler's List) ,and Life of Pi by Yann Martel.
