although there is a lot of talk about Edgar Martins, this book contains many good plates if - now - it's proven that they were shot within the limitations of the medium. the spectaculare night photos could have been made in daylight without post-production. I am not certain, but I considerer the possibility as Edgar Martins considers himself an artist.

Edgar Martins is a fraud 9 July 2009
By scifi-o-phile - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Edgar Martins claims to not digitally alter photos, then does just that. And now he's been caught (do a search on New York Times and Edgar Martins). While his work may look nice here, he has absolutely no integrity for the rest of the photographic community. It's fine to alter photos, be he needs to state he does upfront -- not claim the exact opposite of the truth.

Beautiful images of an ugly lie. 11 July 2009
By Darryl Asher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'll quote the Product description here, in case it gets changed later, as has happened on numerous web pages including the publisher's:
---------
Product Description
With artful composition and controlled framing--but no digital manipulation--Edgar Martins creates sublimely beautiful views of often un-beautiful sites.
---------

***"No digital manipulation."*** This is how the project was sold to the publisher, and how Martins sold his prints for thousands of dollars. He lied and was caught. Now he's trying to backpedal, and like a child who has fallen and says "I meant to do that!" he is making his lie sound like a grand artistic experiment. Don't fall for it.

No matter how beautiful the images, they represent an ugly lie perpetrated on the very people who supported him. You can easily find the info about this with a simple Google search.

I have nothing against manipulation of images for the sake of art, but lying about it, and indeed building your reputation (and print prices!) on your purist stance, while it's been a lie all along, is shameful and immoral. Martins should return his advance, and the publisher should offer refunds.
New insight into spaces 9 Jun. 2014
By HWJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
These are very insightful views of normal spaces.
The view of the normal which makes you think of it as alien
is intriguing and at the same time produces a little anxiety...
the good kind of anxiety that you get, like looking out from a mountain top.
Martins views taught me how to take notice of these insights when I see them through my own camera.
These are not journalistic photos so the furor over manipulating and lying signifies nothing.

This is a gorgeous book and represents Edgar Martins work well.. In addition the text and interviews are informative. I liked my copy so much that I bought another copy as a present to my brother.
