    For B&W photo album, anyone can read Henri Cartier-Bresson's. But for
    color (especially in 35mm), is there any recommendation (or must have)?

    Check out Yann Arthus-Bertand:


    Pete Turner:


    and the agency VII, just for a start:

    <> many photographers here, with some great work
    in colour that wl lead you to some books.

    Also, the agency Henri Cartier-Bresson co-founded, Magnum Photos, should
    offer you some more choices:


    The first photographer I mentioned, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, has a short
    series of books called "Earth from Above". I am not even that interested
    in landscape, nor travel type images, yet I really liked his work.
    Definitely something to look for at your local Barnes & Noble or Border's
    Books (or similar).

    I saw an outdoor exhbit of his at a museum in the Kensington district a
    couple years ago. Very large prints, most from 35mm. Impressive in
    many ways. Also have leafed throught the book you mentioned in the
    snipped text.

    Another 'landscape' photographer with a great eye for 'pattern' is Elliot
    Porter - I love his work. Since this is the 35mm group, I should also
    mention Galen Rowell and Freeman Patterson in this field too.

  5. I would suggest looking at all of Robert Frank's books. As I recall, he
    became famous for his black and white work, then moved into color -- what
    interests me is that he got good reviews for his color work, but also
    critical commentary saying it wasn't as good as his black and white. I
    don't have any of the reviews at hand, but if you go to the trouble to dig
    those out on the Web somewhere, I think you would find the comparisons

    I know it's heresy, but I like Robert Frank's black and white work better
    than HCB's. Fascinating use of negative space, remarkable compositions, and
    catching moments that speak more to me than HCB. Then look at Frank's color
    work. Just an incredible photographer, in my very humble opinion.

    Jesus Christ!

    You *were* kidding, right?

    Those kids are going to give me nightmares, she's made them look dead
    - like zombies.

    I'm not knocking her skill, she's achieved what she set out to do,
    ..... to scare the cr*p out of me.

    Back to my research:

    There was a big Robert Frank retrospective at the Tate Modern only a month
    or two back. Really good exhibition.

    I prefer his earlier work, personally, but he certainly has a great feel for

    She is certainly extremely skilled, but they aren't really the sort of
    pictures many people would want on their walls...

    Anyway: I think her self-portrait is far scarier than any of the other

    Thanks for all your replies. Beside those good suggestions, I also
    specially interest in documentary style works, such as streat
    photography, is there any 5 stars book(album)?

    Wooah... Looks like she could be the next set of monsters on Dr Who.

    Not that she's ugly... but if you woke up next to that in the morning,
    you'd have no problems getting out of bed.

    Oh I dunno... you haven't seen me in the morning!

    Ooh, worse, I shoud think...

    I'm definitely an evening/night person. If I see 5am, it's almost always
    because I haven't gone to bed yet, not because I've got up early. So you
    can imagine I'm not looking my best in the mornings!

  16. In the original joke, (which you may well know) when you wake up in the
    morning, and find her sleeping on your arm, you gnaw your own arm off, and
    sneak out, rather than risk waking her up.......
