There is also enough text to provide a good read, so it's not purely a portfolio of images.
Here, clearly, is a master at work. I'd never heard of him before I visited the Photographers gallery and by chance they had a book about RKM (not this one) and I was surprised I had to date missed this great photographer out from my self-education about photography. As soon as I looked through this book I had no hesitation buying it.
Wonderful, lyrical and different.
Reproduction is also better than LF's Mexico which is the closest book I can compare to) but not as high as some of the very best books on photography.
I'd give it 3.5 stars if possible as I reserve 4 and 5 stars for absolute must have books so this is close to a must have. EDIT: correction - looking back - this is a must have book, because it is one of the essential 'different' books on photography.
