'Phaidon's ground-breaking 55 series once again fulfils its self-set brief, by bringing us articulate and tempting introductions to the work of two photographers whose work is not very well-known in the UK.' Simon James, Royal Photographic Society Journal
'In a brave attempt to match Penguin's success in finding a new market for fiction in the 1930s, Phaidon have put together boxed sets with themes including 'Experimental', 'Masters', '5 Great Documentary Photographers', and of course 'Pioneers' … Phaidon have come up with a great new concept for the photography book; and as a series of skilfully-produced, pocket-sized books […] they do attempt to address key moments in photographic history and innovation.'
