inspiring / photography books
A decade of portraits from perhaps the best living portrait photographer in the world.
Raw, beautiful, and touching portaits of a poor Belgian city and its inhabitants.
This book is like a poem; it moves from wonder to horror and back again. Every page is a surprise, but all the elements somehow come together in total harmony. It's like you're slowly connecting the cover's dots, one by one. And then suddenly you're through and a wonderful picture has emerged.
What a gem. Everyone with the slightest interest in photography wanting to know what ingredients make a great photo should read this. Don't let the fact that it's aimed at children fool you, this book boils photography down to its essentials and is a joy to read.
