This review is from: Colour is Power (Hardcover)
You really get your money's worth with Robert Walker's photography. Throughout the book so many photos a packed with extra dimensions and depth as well possibly cropping them into several images and I haven't even got to the dazzling color. Fortunately he works on city streets where everything is going on at once and somehow he manages to capture this visual busyness (or chaos even). I think his best photos are the ones where utility workers and equipment or traffic provide plenty of odd angles and pictures within pictures.

Of the six chapters only one: Redeem All (more or less in the middle of the book) slows the pace by using photos that are much simpler and in more subdued color. The other chapters, it seems to me, just blend into each other so that the chapter titles seem rather redundant.

The color vibrancy of these photos might not be everybody's taste but that is his style and you could never say his work is dull. I consider him the LeRoy Neiman of photography.
