    ah then...how about Elliott Erwitt? - should be able to find a copy of Private Experience somewhere. Or maybe Sylvia Plachy.

    why don't you just write it and photograph it in your style ?
    so many people look for something magical in getting ideas
    from other people, putting their tripod in their holes, instead
    of finding their own voice ...
    just go to berlin, have an open mind, and a camera full of film
    and write what is on your mind ..

    sorry if i sound "harsh" but it might be more fun too :smile:

    good luck !

    You say Elliott Erwitt, Vivian Maier, I think of Garry Winogrand.

    completely understand man! & I will be doing so, but unfortunetly at college artist research is one thing we have to do, pain in the bum to be honest, because I just want to get on with my own thing. doesnt sound harsh atall man! completely agree.

    hi joe,

    in that case
    why don't you check out the work of robert frank.
    he travelled across the states way back when
    and the book from it was "the americans"...

    don't forget to have fun :smile:
