Chasing Rainbows

With his Olympus TV advertising in the 70s David Bailey reached recognition with the masses and the fact he photographed all the beautiful and famous made him the name in fashion and glamour photography. This aptly titled book picks out some of his best work that followed the fashions over the years from the 60s to present day. As a result many of the photos now look very dated. The printing is also quite suspect with a matt style paper that has dulled down the quality of repro. This doesn't do ...

Coincidences

I always remember being fascinated by Sarah Moons soft and low contrast photography from a portfolio in Creative Photography magazine back in the 80s, so I awaited this new arrival with excitement. The first edition is hardback and a typically heavy coffee table style art book. It has 193 photographs each full page and just one page intro from Sarah and a couple of conversations splitting up the images. The images are split into chapters with no explanation of the relevance or titles; one chapte...

Complete Guide to Digital Photography

When I saw this book I was expecting another one of those books that provides a shallow overview of digital photography written by a highly respected traditional photographer. I was pleasantly surprised. The beginning lived down to my expectations, a typical formulaic intro, but this soon shifts a gear and has some great advice on shoot with a computer and calibration. Then in chapter 2 there are some excellent illustrated pieces on digital image editing with levels, histograms, selection tools ...

Deep Sites: Intelligent Innovation in Contemporary Web Design

For the modern web designer this book is organised into five sections covering Interface and navigation, Typography, Animation, Community and Authoring. The book brags of 1000 illustrations but many of these are similar pages from a web site. The dissection of various sites is interesting the choice of sites less so. Not the most inspiring web design book I've come across.

Earth From The Air 365 days

This adaptation of the highly successful Earth From The Air book takes the original 170 aerial views and adds a further 195 to create a year of pictures. The quality is amazing with pictures of every corner of every continent. We are treated to a highly visual feast making us appreciate our world at a higher level. Better still each photograph is accompanied by a description of the area being photographed from above, so as well as being inspired by stunning landscapes we can learn loads at the ...

Henri Cartier-Bresson: Here and Now

This book is the life story of one of the greatest photographers the world has ever seen. Henri Cartier-Bresson is perhaps one of the most well known and famous photographers to date, and he has been the first photographer to have his work showcased in the Louvre. This is very much a reference book, and provides a lot of information on the photographer as well as giving plenty of examples of his most famous, and also his lesser seen images, with images of some of his rare and unpublished...

Henri Cartier-Bresson: the Image and the World: The Complete Picture

A wonderful look at one of the finest reportage photographers in history. With over 600 photographs reproduced over 430+ pages, we have a fascinating insight into the life of this genius. It's bloody heavy though!!

In the Darkroom: An Illustrated Guide to Photographic Processes before the Digital Age

This handy sized (24x16cm) paperback has 96 pages and covers all the processes used since 1839. Each process is split into alphabetical order and colour coded with a time line to show how the world of photography evolved. The idea of the book is to help you understand the process in how it worked, who used it and examples of the images they created using it. So each one has a bullet pointed date of use, type, inventor and variant names. You then have a detailed but easy to understand explan...

Joel-Peter Witkin (Photofile)

Part of a series of compact 19x12.5cm books that provide a snapshot guide to some of the worlds finest photographers. Embarrassingly I'd not heard of Joel-Peter Witkin until this book arrived. The photographer provides a macabre look at his subject, blended with eroticism and very much surreal in style. All the photos are sepia toned and many are darkroom manipulated images with scratched surfaces and ragged edges. These will give digital photographers a few ideas too try. Worth a look but wil...

Magnum Magnum

Probably the most comprehensive and informative book on Magnum yet. This 568 page brick, edited by Brigitte Lardinois, delivers a mini portfolio of each of 69 Magnum photographers. If anyone should know the insides of the business it's Brigitte who spent 10 years as Special Projects and Cultrual Director at Magnum Photos in London. She's gathered together personal choices of each photographer into a collection of over 400 photos to deliver a snapshot of the 60 years the photography and photograp...
