    At the moment I fancy “Tir a’Mhurain”, Paul Strand’s work from South Uist

    • Me too!
      And non-book: I would like Fuji to change their mind on 4×5 Velvia 50…

      • Jennifer Ward

        Hmmm, might have to work on Fuji…

    Magnum contact sheets Book

    • David Higgs

      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.

  • LShepherd

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

  • Nigel

    Prompted by this list I now have
    Here, far away – Pentti Sammallahti
    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.

  • Hans Strand

    The new book by Chris Bell “The Tarkine”. Simply fantastic !
