Her photos are remarkable and are positively an inspiration to both beginners as well as professional photographers.
Even if I'd give it the benefit of doubt - perhaps it's just not my cup of tea - No Rules Street Photography is just too lightweight, with no substantiation on the 'no rules' movement. At 108 pages, which could have easily been halved and still have space to spare, it's all garnish and no meat. Having read her blogs and seen her photographs, this book could have been a great title on alternative photography. I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of this book and I am quite dumbfounded by the far cry the finished product is from its potential.
Next, this book is near impossible to read. The choice of typefaces, sometimes with several on a single page, is painful on the eyes. I think a type foundry was a sponsor and the designer just had to showcase all its fonts - a wrong thing to do, in my opinion. The layout is 'grungy', which is alright as a style, but it is overdone to the extent of serving no form or function.
What makes it sadder than the fact that I could not salvage any redeeming quality from this title, is the author - Nitsa - is actually a talented photographer with much to offer. Tragically, none of which made it between the covers of No Rules Street Photography. Certainly not worth the asking price, not even half of it, if you ask me. I returned the book. Sorry.
