    colour photographer book suggestionss?

    Hi,
    I would like to check out the work of some more photographers and buy me some books. I search the internet from time to time, and browse stores as well, but since I live in a rather small city there is not much to explore...
    I was hoping some of you guys can provide me with some suggestions of photographers that I could/should check out.
    My personal tastes:

    > colour photography
    > landscape/cityscape
    > no people, or politics etc.
    > artistic point of view

    I love joel meyerowitz for example, at least his cape cod works. There is some magic he is able to see, that I have not seen to often in anyone elses work. By artistic point of view I mean, I don't care to much about postcard like mountains or clouds or sunsets if you know what I mean. I like it if some underlying tension is felt.

    Well, I hope I made my question clear and that some suggestions will follow.

    THANKS and best regards Sam

    I absolutely loathe anything by Joel Meyerowitz.

    Check out the works of Joe Cornish, David Ward, Ken Duncan or Jack Dykinga.

    You may also wish to check the color work of David Muench, Tom Till, William (Bill) Neill, Eliot Porter, Philip Hyde, Galen Rowell, and Art Wolfe.

    I'll second Galen Rowell, especially his book "Inner Game of Outdoor Photography." Lots of tips and points to ponder from his articles for Outdoor Photography magazine.

    There is a site www.masters-of-photography.com which has examples of images by many (but not all) noted photographers. (For example, there's no Eliot Porter.) While most of the images there are black and white, there are color images by William Eggleston and Stephen Shore. (This is not a recommendation of these two gentlemen, I'm simply pointing out a site where you can see samples of various photographers.)

    Of the people mentioned so far, I like Eliot Porter the best....

    Christopher Burkett.

    He's changed his website - I now find it bothersome and had trouble finding links to his books...

    Two additional color photographers that may be of interest are Carr Clifton and Jeff Gnass.
