    How many have photo library?

    How many of you have a library of books by the legends of Photography? I myself have about 50, but that's only because I can't afford more.

    I have maybe around ten of those books.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    five - 10 for me ... Robert Frank, Bresson, Doisneau, Capa, Bourke-White, August Sander and one or two collections of various photographers.

    I have a couple hundred..sold off a number during hard times.Bad idea.I think that books are still the best way to discover and enjoy other photographers.Better than galleries.The very first photography book I ever noticed was one that I passed on....but then searched frantically for years later..and finally found.It was a lesson for me.I buy on impulse.Never regret a purchase..I am always glad when I can go and pull a monograph off the shelf and look through anothers eyes.

    A bunch.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I have 12 to 15 books on/by photographers who particularly inspire me (Michals, Tress, Newman, Morell, Madoz, and Samaras) as well as a few anthologies. Good photo books are expensive, so while I would like to have a more complete of canonical photographers, I have let to start building one.
