( I requested it as it came up on Amazon's 'recommended' - the cover got me interested and as I already had his 'Istanbul' book which I found cheap whilst browsing in a bookshop - I got it ordered and eagerly looked forward to seeing whether it lived up to expectations)
It did!. :)
This has to be my all time favourite colour street photog book ever, maybe my all time favourite photo book ever ( and Ive got a few!). I have never enjoyed turning the pages of a photo book so much, the anticipation, excitement and ensuing smile and simple joy brought at the turn of nearly every page had me mentally jumping for joy and catching my breath at the physical sensuality of the rich colours and intricate, almost maze-like, compositions.
He reminds me of and is equal to Steve Mc Curry and William Eggleston for colour, is reminiscent of Ray K Metzker and Lee Friedlander for novel and intricate compositions, certainly equals HCB for decisive moments, and really shows Martin Parr up a treat ( eat your heart out Martin!), - absolutely great!, I have never seen better; in fact, never seen as good.
And thank fully the quality of the book is right up there with the best, the paper, cover, and the colour reproduction are top notch
It's such a treat to discover someone you really should have known a long time ago. Thanks go to Alex, for putting this book together:)
I highly recommend this book to anyone that has some interest on street photography or to anyone that is interested in photography in general.
