Some excerpts from the book.
Front cover and spine
Hi Bloke - well the package arrived and I did like you said and ripped it open. And there it was. Settled into the chair with a cuppa and some Vivaldi and wandered off into your book. 2 hours later I looked up, its dark, Vivaldi is on its 3rd loop and I'm both inspired and confused. Inspired to do better and confused as I try to work through some of the images and determine how I might get a similar result (I'm not a plagiarist, more about repeating a similar effect on a different subject).
But wow what a great effort - I thoroughly enjoyed the book and have shared it with 2 people since.
Thanks and well done
To say; I have read the book and I will make a make a comment on the images, is to do a great injustice to the Photographer and the whole essence of the books contents. Neither is this book a reference book.
It is a shared journey through the eyes and mind of a photographer.
It is a window through which the true concept of photography can be seen. It does not have boundaries, but stretches as far as the imagination and beyond.
Whether the photographs show power of frozen motion through the passage of time or the soft
calmness and translucent movement through time, the whole concept of space and passage through time is shown well to be the foundation of the book and is illustrated with all the skill and craft of a photograph who sees beyond the possible.
Relish the journey....Peter’g
I thought the book was excellent - the challenge will be to better it next time!
