Been buying a lot this year the best being Let Truth be the Prejudice by Ben Maddow abouth the life of Eugene Smith . Great images and a real insight in to the man's mind. Highly recommended.

Some of the older books can be as expensive as a good lens.

"River of Shadows" by Rebecca Solnit -- in part, a biography of Edward Muybridge, but also an exploration of how technology impacts our lives (including cinema, the descendent of Muybridge's work). A very interesting book.

My last photography related book was "Wer sind Sie, Henri Cartier-Bresson?", a pictorial volume with several essays about HCB's life and work.
Not sure what's the English title of it.

Before that there were Günter Osterloh's Leica M book and a volume about the photos of Stanley Kubrick before he became movie director.

Four issues of 1920's era magazine, "Kodakery."
Prior to that, nothing for several months after William Mortensen's "The Model."

Oh, non-photography related? "The Conscience of a Conservative" by Barry Goldwater and "MicroTrends" by Mark Penn and E. Kinney Zelesne.

Pure unadulterated inspiration

A book filled with beautiful photographs of landscape, street scene, portraits... or the 'unexpected' fill me up with pure unadulterated inspiration. I just looked through a new book called "Family (Photographers photograph their families)" by Phaidon. Now I can't wait to get the portrait lens on the camera and corral the family in some beautiful light somewhere!

Other recent purchases: 2 books of Cartier-Bresson photos, 1 of Wynn Bullock, 1 of Henry Wessel, 1 of Gary Winogrand, 1 of Lee Friedlander, and the newest Nikon Compendium (to satisfy a bit of the late-night GAS attacks).

I picked up two photo books here in London last week: Satellites by Jonas Bendiksen and Istanbul by Alex Webb. Both are fantastic.

I've bought a lot of photography books lately, but my favorite by far is Uncommon Places by Stephen Shore. I keep going back to his photos again and again. He's pretty much the final word on colour photography composition.

The new Steidl edition of Robert Frank's "The Americans" is a beauty. Highly recommended, if not already owned or just want better reproductions.
I'm finding "The Genius of Photography", although enjoyable, just too much to get through. Maybe more than I really want to know, my own failing.

"I never wanted to be famous" by Steve Barbour, medical doctor and Leica user. This book is really a labor of love over the ten years that Dr. Barbour took these pictures of young children. It is a study of the human spirit in the face of daunting odds - serious infectious diseases. Great to see excellent documentary work from an amateur photographer.

Might not count as bibliomania per se but I've recently subscribed to Private magazine:

Highly recommended.

I recently got Harry Callahan, National Gallery; Walker Evans "The Hungary Eye", and Winogrand's "Public Relations" for the grand total of $16. Wish I could get "The Animals" for that cheap!

"1/8 sec." from Jim Rakete. Portraits taken with an old large format camera at 1/8 or longer. Very nice pictures, i just love it.
It's quite new and I wanted it, so i had to pay 68 EUR.

Westerbeck and Meyerowitz, "Bystander: A History of Street Photography". Large, semi-academic tome. Read it in 24 hours. Fun, although like any 'survey' attempt, there are gaps I'm sure and places where the analysis is uneven. But, still, highly recommended, because like any good 'critique', it raises one's level of "informed appreciation" of the work it discusses.

This month's (bi-monthly) issue of Lens Work (I have a subscription) - it's the only photography mag/book I read - it offers me a look at people's work; different types of work (not just street or landscape or abstract alone...) and it has a good read and there's nary an advert save for their own items (books/cd's)

Amazon.ca finally shipped Fred Herzog's Vancouver Photographs. I'm very excited for that to arrive. I also ordered Lee Friedlander's Cherry Blossom Time in Japan. I hope they arrive today, but I'll probably have to wait until next week.
