Microcosmos [DVD]
Microcosmos [DVD]
Dvd ~ Claude Nuridsany
Offered by best_value_entertainment
Price: £9.24

5.0 out of 5 stars A mind-expanding hour of film magic, 8 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Microcosmos [DVD] (DVD)
This is such an extraordinary and inspiring film that I have bought it 3 times over - in order to share it. One of those films that I can come back to again and again when I need that kind of inspiration. A film like no other that I know. If you know of anything similar, tell me... I would love to know.

Willy Ronis Photographs 1926 - 1995
by Peter Hamilton
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful edition of one of the best photographers, 8 Feb. 2016
Beautifully produced. Great collection of photos. The text is brilliant, revealing a great story about a first-class photographer. One of my favourite photobooks.


Up West
Up West
by David Solomons
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Street photography from the West End of London, 6 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Up West (Hardcover)
Sound street photography... from over a decade photographing West London


Walter Benjamin: A Philosophical Portrait
Walter Benjamin: A Philosophical Portrait
by Eli Friedlander
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £31.30

3.0 out of 5 stars Rather arcane philosophically, 2 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Erudite but perhaps rather specialist. I assumed from the "portrait" in the title that it would treat of the whole biography, or at least treat the rather arcane early philosophy biographically. But this really is a dip into arcane and long-forgotten philosophical debates. It is well-executed but of limited general interest, even to people like me with a life-long interest in Benjamin.


Architecture: Form, Space, and Order
Architecture: Form, Space, and Order
by Francis D. K. Ching
Edition: Paperback
Price: £32.05

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect textbook, 2 July 2015
Perfect? Well, in its organisation. The progression of this book is so rational, so well-organised. The drawings simplify and clarify.

I read this book through in one sitting (aided by a 4-hour delay of my train) and loved it. It has become a yardstick against which I would measure any other textbook. It is a beautiful book and I learnt a great deal.


The World Atlas of Street Photography
The World Atlas of Street Photography
by Jackie Higgins
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £19.96

2.0 out of 5 stars Badly mis-named... but with some excellent examples of photography related to a (small) variety of cities, 8 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Badly mis-names (or mis-titled)... This volume does not attempt anything like a world-survey. It presents work from a limited number of cities with one photographer representing each city. Many of these samples are worth collecting. Some of the material is very much fine art or art-photography and a long way from any widely-held definition of "street photography". But as a sampler of photographic approaches to cities, it is definitely worth looking at.

Gordon Parks: Segregation Story
Gordon Parks: Segregation Story
by Gordon Parks
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £23.80

4.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating historical photo-essay, 8 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A worthwhile publication from a great photographer. But this was originally intended to be a mere photo-essay and there are only a limited number of photos and not many of them have the resonance of the cover photo. I am really glad to have added this to my library but it is a slim volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great performance at a great price, 8 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like this. I love that the batteries are so different from the silver original. I think, if anything, performance is better than with the original. This has been one of my 'best buys'
