This is an unusual and brilliant collection of images. Firstly, because the range - over subjects and time - is great, as Sefton Samuels has had his camera with him for very many years in all sorts of situation. Secondly, because the huge collection of images is presented in a no-nonsense way in a relatively small-format publication which feels as good as it looks and is a pleasure to return to. There are marvellous images of unknown people here, but there's also a surprising number of the famous and infamous, many of them snapped at a time when they were as yet unknown.
Don't miss out on this book - it won't take up much room on your shelves, and you will find yourself going back to it again and again.
