    "The Students of Deep Springs College" by Michael A Smith

    While I usually don't heap mountains of praise on Michael (he has groupies at the ready to do that) I have to say that this little book is unique!

    Brilliant in execution, it is a visual feast. And the bio's that each student wrote are priceless! Bravo Michael! A bargain at double the price.

    I guess it's safe to say I'm enjoying my read! My photographers soul is drinking it in.

    If you don't have it....Get it.

    I have two questions, Jim:

    1. where in the heck is Deep Springs, and

    2. are the students young, pretty, and nude?

    Really Ralph.

    Some of us photographer types don't care where deep springs is.

    1.) Deep Springs College is East of Lone Pine, California quite literally in the center of no-where. Lone Pine is S. of Bishop in the Eastern Sierra.

    2.) Yes, No, Not while I was there. There are 26 students and 12 or so faculty. Students are all male. Academically, the college ranks 3rd in the nation. Quite a special place.

    Ralph,

    Actually, a few are quite pretty, but there is only one nude.

    I'm an alumnus myself, and when I was a student from 1984-86, I also made portraits of all the students at Deep Springs. I've posted this before, but a few of us from my class got together at the college a couple of summers ago, and I took a group picture and made a folio with photographs of us from the time we were students--

    It appears to be an incredible college. It reminds me of Black Mountain College.
