Books, Books, Books…
I’ve been so incredibly busy lately, I haven’t taken almost any images in three months! My hands are itching and I have several ideas, but either the weather does not cooperate or I have boring stuff to take care of.
And I haven’t looked at many photo books lately either. Right now I have a stack of “unread” books on the side of my bed that weighs almost as much as I do. Here a few titles:
- Herb Ritts Work
- Sebastiao Salgado Africa
- Steve McCurry South Southeast
- Freeman Patterson Photography and the Art of Seeing
- Larry Bartlett Black and White Photographic Printing Workshop
Oh, and talking about books… I fear I’m turning into a collector of photography books. I used to have a few how-to books only, but the number of fine-art books has grown steadily over the past few months and the black and white ones are winning by a thin margin over color.
