This is an excellent book for seeing how different photographers work. Whether the images appeal or not, it doesn't matter, it's the thought processes that their creators have gone through and some of their jottings that can offer inspiration. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to find out how other photographers develop ideas.

Some great pages and examples. Would've been better with more well-known photographers. Focus on analogue photography approaches; would be good to see digital methods.
