I have coming, as a Christmas gift, a copy of Bruce Davidson's East 100th St. My kids always ask if I have any suggestions, so I let that be known. As they were all claiming the right to get for me, I was suggesting that they make it a joint gift. When they found what a good copy cost, they understood why.

Just got the following
The rollei manual by A.Pearlman
workbook of darkroom techniques by john hedgecoe
color darkroom techniques by Ralph Hattersley
making colour prints by J.M.Whitaker.

I have a few thomas tomosy books around here too as well as the Romney ones. I found a lovely old secondhand bookshop round here where all their books go for about £4-5, so I dived in, I found the Leica way but resisted the temptation, however I may go back for it if its a good read.

The wife doesn't like me spending money on books, I don't know why.

Bruce Davidson - England/Scotland 1960
Bruce Davidson - Circus
Chien-chi Chang - I Do I Do I Do
Susan Meiselas - Carnival Strippers

The two bruce davidson books are brilliant. I love the pictures in Chang's I do i do i do but was annoyed by the positioning of photos in the book. (I hate it when they place photos through the middle fold!)

Carnival Strippers has some interesting pictures and capitvating stories but the layout of the book, font choices, and overall design is a disaster.

I just found a cracking bookshop in York.
I've got a horrible feeling I will be spending a lot of time and money in there.

I went in there for a look around on my lunch break and walked out with a copy of Jessica Dimmock's The Ninth Floor.

It really is a great book.
It is so personal, and IMO very non-judgemental.
I highly recommend it, but it is certainly not 'light reading/viewing'.

Annie Leibovitz "At Work".
Her well known pictures and some explanation 'behind the scenes'. On inspiration, on the work itself, on equipment, quite interesting - if you like her. We had a nother thread where the opinions had been pretty polarized.

Joel Peter Witkin, Disciple and Master. Witkin can be tough to take, but to see the image that influenced his image, side-by-side, and preceded by JPW's own words is very interesting. The guy loves photography and photographs.

Jacob Holdt, "American Pictures". In some ways not a photography book at all, but an intense book to look at (and read ... there's a lot of text) from a Danish "vagabond" who traveled (hitchhiked) around the US for years taking photographs.

Kevin, was this the one you brought to the party? There were two books (among many) floating around that night that were pretty interesting. Matt brought one and IIRC, you brought the other.

edit: checked it out on Amazon. I don't believe this was the same book, but I'd like to see this one sometime.

Ray,
You're right -- not the same book. But I will definitely bring it along to the next BLOW-UP get together. Troubling and highly polemic, it is definitely a strong book (both photographically and politically), even if it's a bit dated in some ways.

Santa brought me Martine Franck's "One Day to the Next" yesterday. Very interesting stuff and much more sensitive than her husband's shots somehow. Must be her female side.

My wife gave me "In Search of Norman Rockwell's America," by Kevin Rivoli, for Christmas. A photographer's work compared to the illustrations of Norman Rockwell, proving once and for all that Norman Rockwell's America did [and does] too exist.

Lately I have been using my boss' darkroom and, among other things his Christmas, he gifted me a copy of "Processing and Printing" by Julien Busselle. It's a little basic but there's some good info in there.

In December,David Hurn's "Photograph's 1956 - 1976" and his portrait album "Living in Wales". Hurn has always been a favorite of mine, quite subtle and dedicated to his craft. His and Bill Jays "On Being A Photographer" is a must for anyone taking pictures, be it commercially or for private pleasure only.

I just finished reading Roberto Bolano's 2666. James Nachtwey's Inferno arrived for Christmas. You could call them both heavy books.
