    he isn't lesser known or contemporary, but Gaspard-Félix Tournachon's complete works are
    available in hardcover. the book just called NADAR is probably one of the most amazing
    collections of portraits and other things. very old, but very new at the same time.
    i have to warn you though, there are portraits of Pierrot in it, and he is a
    clown

    Here's a few more to keep this thing going. I expected an avalance of books, but, oh well.

    Jack Spencer's "Native Soil" , very innovative portraits of the American South sunk into deep sepia's .

    Ken Light's "Delta Time" another fantastic documentary of the American South. Traditional, but riveting.

    Enzo Sellerio's " A Photographer in Sicily" 50's 60's 35mm documentary that will make you wonder why he's not spoken of in the same sentence with Bresson.

    Charles Jones's "The Plant Kingdoms of Charles Jones" literally discovered at an English antique store in a trunk. Master Gardener Charles Jones did to glass plates what Edward Weston did to film, in the plant world. The plates were later cleaned off and used as sheilds to young seedlings, by Charles himself. Only the prints survived.

    Robert Dawson and Stephen Johnson's " The Great Central Valley" documentary of California's central valley. Highly varied and a plethora
    of images pepper this survey of the agricultural region of California. Excellent historical writing to boot, by Gerald Haslam.

    Ruven Afanador - Torero and Sombra. I just did a quick peek on Amazon looking for it to make sure the title is right, and it looks like I'm sitting on a goldmine - the current cheapest available copy of Torero is $835.

    Edward Burtinsky - Manufactured Lanscapes

    He is getting a lot of play recently, with the Globe and Mail, one of Canada's national newspapers using a lot of his images as a background to a review of what the Athabaska Oil Sands developments are doing to the otherwise relatively un-developed lands where they are sprouting up.
