    Lesser known great finds

    I'd like to hear about some new photographers books that I might be missing, contemporary preferably, but no sense holding to that.

    Some of mine are:

    Dave Anderson's "Rough Beauty" excellent portraits and documentary of the poor of Vidor, Texas taken by a Keith Carter influenced genius.

    Susan Lipper's "Trip" disarmingly simple but powerful stills from a road trip into the American scene of motels and such. Not for the classic minded.

    William Wylie's "Riverwalk" Robert Adams influenced, but definitly his own survey of a Colorado river area done in the most beautiful long tonalities imaginable. Also very intelligent combination of the so called banal and the classic beautiful landscape.

    Kevin Bubriski's "Portrait of Nepal" Extremely beautiful and unmatched portraits and print quality of people in remote areas of Nepal. This has got to be the gold standard of this genre.

    Got any others I should check into? I'm not too informed, having just discovered Abelard Morell. So all suggestions are encouraged. Thanks.

    I remember having a book by a Charles Pratt many years ago. There was a shot of a cow lying down in the grass. Smooth long sweeping back. That the same guy?

    The tintype guy was in National Geographic Dec. 2007

    I have the Charles Pratt book too and I'd agree with Peter. It was published in 1982 and for those interested the title is "Charles Pratt Photographs" ISBN 0-89381-111-4

    This book I thought was interesting by George Forss. New York/New York masterworks of a street peddler. ISBN 0-07-018208-6 He is a street peddler that sells his prints of NY on the sidewalks for 6.00, 7.00 dollars, two for 10.00. Really enjoyed the book.

    Charles Pratt "The Garden and the Wilderness" Horizon Press 1980. I also have a copy of the 1982 book Les mentioned. I see from the book that he died in 1976. And yes he did the cow picture. The older I get the more I like his take on the landscape.

    Ray McSavaney, "Explorations". The year of its publication it was voted the most beautiful photography book of the year.The images evoke the quiet manner which all who know him associate with Ray.
