Then I found this book (about 10 years ago), it is a large format book filled from cover to back with page upon page of huge, sometimes double page, full colour images , presumably shot on large format, (if not it nonetheless looks like it).
The images range from images of single persons or group bathing on a vast coastline or azure coloured sea, of derelict buses in the desert, of dead animals in a desert, of some well known bridge in the USA taken at different times of day, of backyards, of what (I think) was the grounds where Vincent Vercace was gunned down, of a bloke on roller blades on his own in the desert etc - I.e. a complete mishmash of images
It's not until you read reviews that you get some insight as to why they are set out this way, it is a record of some of RMs projects throughout his career. OK, Fine: it would have been nice though for those of us that aren't art historians to have had some ( any) text to read at the front or back ( Im not asking for a page by page captioning, although many pages are captioned minimally on the back), but something to put it all in context and something about this photographer and his thoughts would have been appreciated. Nevermind, it is what it is, a book of the most sumptuous colour images by a renowned photographer.
So why did I buy this book, knowing so little about the photographer if there's no text to explain or expound? It certainly wasn't cheap! Simple; the same reason the book is laid out the way it is, the images pretty much speak for themselves.Read more ›
