Fascinating insights. Love Dyer...poetic yet down to earth. I recommend this wholeheartedly. Goes alongside Sontag's 'On Photography' as one of the most interesting books on photography.

The most unusual book on photography that I have read, and the most enjoyable. Free of all pretension and full of insight, gossip, and entertainment.

I am now really enjoying this book on photographers and photography. I don't always agree with Geoff Dyer's sense of the photographs he has chosen to reflect on but that is a good thing. This book is also making me think about my own photography which I also like.

I am reading this book in slow easy chunks and finding it fascinating. The way the author combines commentaries on photographs with meditations of life in general makes for a much better read about photography than simply analysing techniques and f numbers. My only issue, as with other reviewers, is the poor reproduction of photos. Even more annoying - consider we are meant to share the contemplation of each picture - is that some photos are not even there. My advice - have your iPad open and google pictures as they get a mention and then have each before you as read Geoff Dyer's text. He is one of my favourite writers and I am looking forward to White Sands.

A page turner.
