Photo Books up for Review


I mentioned in a previous post that I was planning on reviewing some of the books that I have recently purchased. I thought that I would put the question out to the masses (dont know if this is the right word for my blog, but we get the point right....) and see if there were any preferences on what people would like to hear about, that way I can put some stuff out there that people might want to read. All of these are special to me in their own way, so I would find it hard to chose a place to start. Some of the books are a direct influence on the type of work that I aspire to, others are just plain interesting. I am sure that there are some on the list that people will already know, and there are likely some that are just a little more out of left field that some may not have seen before. If anyone has some more obscure titles that they would like to share with me (preferably that dont mean that I am tempted to take out a sizable loan to buy them) then I would love to hear about them! You can contact me on the social links on the sidebar!
