if you have to.......,
This review is from: Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography (Vintage Classics) (Paperback)
I "had" to read this for an MA. If you "had" to read a book to inform your photography and have done all the digital "how to" and "what to do" self help manuals, try this. It as a work of theory is very acessable, very current and in avoiding all of the "technical stuff" may stary a serious development of your own "style" "signature" or "understanding."
The essay on the recolections of a "snapshot" and the issues arising from his reaction is moving and facinating, I have been doing photography for a long time and found this book intreging.
