    on Distant Horizons

    It must have been rather fab to research this, and it's terrific to encounter artists involved in the genre.

    on Camera Survey

    It might be interesting to see how the votes would stack if you asked in three months to repeat the survey, I for one missed the original request. It's a very interesting survey and nice to see that Pentax still have such a large following, likewise the medium and large format categories, [...]

    on Is Adobe Creative Cloud Bad For Photographers?

    Great article Paul! I hope Adobe will continue to develop Photoshop with new features for photographers. I would love some new adjustment layers, how about midtone contrast (a.k.a clarity)?

    • I got this cheap off Amazon, it’s a great book! The contacts are actually really reassuring, you see some great pictures and realise that most photographers work a scene to get that iconic shot – only a few were ‘one shot’ wonders.

  1. Eliot Porter: In the Realm of Nature
    David Wilson: Wales A Photographer’s Journey
    Joel Sternfeld: American Prospects
    Jan Tove: Silent Landscape
    Jem Southam: The River Winter

  2. Top of the list Jem Southam’s The River Winter. Jem showed me early contact prints from this new work last year and the images are exquisite. I hope to be interviewing Jem sometime in the next few months about his work

  3. ‘A Camera in the Hills: The Life and Work of W.A. Poucher’ – Roly Smith
    ‘A Camera in the Cairngorms’ – W.A. Poucher
    ‘The Periglaciation of Great Britain’ – Colin K. Ballantyne, Charles Harris

  4. I have pre-ordered a book by Alberto Bregani – Dentro e fuori le cime – black and white film photography from the Dolomites. But I hope to add the Pentti Sammallahti book as well.

  5. Dan Winters : America, Icons and Ingenuity
    Dan Winters : Last Launch
    Happy Christmas to all at ‘on landscape’, and readers.

    • More seriously, ‘Photographs 1955-2010′ John Blakemore, Andre Kertesz Jeu de Paume exhibition catalogue (Frizot/Wanaverbecq), Richard Mizrach ‘Golden Gate’, Frederic Brenner ‘Diaspora’.

  6. Johsel Namkung – A Retrospective. Though I heard back from the publishers too late to try and persuade my husband this was a good idea! ;-(

  7. Prompted by this list I now have
    Here, far away – Pentti Sammallahti
    and
    In the realm of nature – Eliot Porter.

    I also have
    Arc and line – Charlie Waite.

    Each of them is proving to be a delight and I can recommend them all.

    I am looking forward to the publication Jan Tove’s Silent Landscape, the printing of which has been delayed.
