    Sam Abell - The Life Of A Photograph

    I've recent taken steps back from gear acquisition to take a look at other photographer's work to get myself inspired to create a vision that's bigger than my "gear".
    My wife purchased this book for me back in 2010 and I have to admit that at first I wasn't too sure what to see in the images. A few years later, (present day), I've looked at Sam Abell's work again in this book and it seems like all of a sudden there's more significance to it. I read his narrative and I'm beginning to understand what he means.

    Anyways, Sam Abell is a photographer that I've learned to enjoy.

    Likewise.

    Abell's monographs are all terrific. If you can find an affordable copy of "The Photographic Life", I think it is his finest. Check out the number of terrific long form videos of Abell on YouTube, as well.

    Thanks for sharing. I'll go take another look with a different perspective.

    Thanks for bringing this.

    Found this link.

    Surprising at the end when he talks about how may shots he took for the project (25k) versus how many photos were used (8), and this was with film.

    Thanks for the link. His perseverance is exemplary. I have one of his books (on gardens) that I cherish.
