Yes, I do - it's quite different in that's it's more of a road-trip book and a different style compared to the more straightforward Places - although the concept of showing all four walls of each living space in Places is very interesting.

I have been a bit slow with books this month, only 2 worth mentioning: Magnum 1957- This is a "cataloge" over the first major Magnum Show in 1957. Well printed. A friend in Japan gave it to me.
2nd book: Dream Sreet, The Pittsburg Story by Eugeen Smith. Not the greatest reproductions, but nice to see the story as a whole, rather than as small blocks.
I agree that collecting books are far more dangerous than hoarding M2's. Less likelihood of a pile of M2's damaging or maiming you than a pile of books. Word of warning - reading Magnum,Magnum in bed is hazardous. It is unlikely that you will fall asleep, but if you do there is a high risk of concussion!

Books are also dangerous when it comes time to move! It is back-breaking work lugging them around... With a library of 5000+ volumes (most academic monographs), my back hated me this past January. (I think there's still 20+ boxes unpacked in the garage...ugh.)

The 5B4 blog is great for discovering books...I bought Jason Eskenazi's "Wonderland, A Fairy Tale of the Soviet Monolith" after reading about it there.

Elliott Erwitt "Unseen". I walked into a Ralph Lauren store, and there was a table full of books. Found it among yacht, mansions and luxury car books. I walked out with a good book, and no clothing. It's my first Elliott Erwitt book, and I was impressed. Can anyone recommend more Elliott Erwitt books?

finally ponied up the money for Salgado's "Africa" -- amazing images, but so many are so hard to look that I'm going to have to take it in small chunks

I was given for my 21st birthday I was given a copy of Curse Of The Black Gold by Ed Kashi.
I saw some of his work in National Geographic while in a doctor's waiting room, and when I heard the book was out I was very excited but couldn't ever justify purchasing it, so I was so grateful when I received it.

Robert Adams

I was fortunate to just come across Robert Adam's (no relation to Ansel) writing for the first time, and find it revelatory, most erudite, yet readable. He takes a photograph both within and without its immediate context and relates it both to the larger world and other forms of art and makes it seem more a complete work than simply an object in a gallery. So far I have gone through "Beauty in Photography" (twice in a week) with "Why People Photograph" in between. I have more of his work on order already; impatiently awaiting arrival. And I've yet to see a photo made by the man, but his prose certainly speaks to me. Most highly recommended (and short with big print to boot).

Amazon should be paying RFF a commission for this thread alone -- it is responsible for inducing major BAS (book acquisition syndrome) for me on a regular basis!

Jonas Bendiksen's new one, with an intro by Philip Gourevich, "The Places We Live." Breathtaking. Conceptually cool, too--he photographed people's slum houses throughout the world, many of them homemade, four photos per house, one of each wall. Each set is a double foldout, so you can see the whole house at once. Some of the subjects are very ingenious; others surprisingly cheerful despite their poverty. bendiksen really knows how to connect with people in obscure places.

My latest addition is "The polaroid book". What? Polaroid? But the graphical compositions inside are very good. I suppose, this book will influence the composition of my photographs quite a lot.

"100 photos de Reza" for Reporters Sans Frontieres/Reporters Without Borders.



Reza is one of my favorite photographer, his portraits and war photographs are simply amazing.

There don't seem to be any independent book sellers left around here. I picked up a couple more hardbound U.S. Camera Annuals from the 50's and 60's and a 1940's vintage The Leica Manual at a yard sale a couple years back. Most all my reading these days is on line. The only magazines that I still get are a couple of professional journals on urban planning. My son (and others) keeps bugging me to start editing my blog into a few books about my life as a photographer, the people I've known and photographed, etc. The task seems daunting.
