    A book I read recently was The Old Patagonian Express by Paul Theroux which is a travel book. I can just imagine going through about 10 rolls of FP4 on a trip like this.

    Both Barry Thorton books. Great anecdotes and stories around relevant photography experiences as examples for the aspects he discusses and teaches. Great inspiration and very entertaining. I've read them both a few times over the years.

    Everyone should own them!

    I'm half way through it. I absolutely loved the stories of the celebrity portraits. Reading the autobiographical bit at the start, bascially stating how he got where he is, was very interesting.

    Vivian Maier's Street Photographer was a christmas present I keep going back to. I find her portraits to be absolutely stunning.

    Did you know that Alice in Wonderland was written by a rather good photographer? That's inspirational in itself...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    I've picked up a bunch of books over the past few months and have just recently sat down to slowly go through them:

    "terra Incognita" by Richard Sexton
    "white light silent shadows" Bruce Cratsley
    "here far away" Pentti Sammallahti
    "Urban Landscapes', "Seacoast Maine". Fields of Peace", "Paterson II" George Tice
    "departures and arrivals" Charles Harbutt
    "Road to Seeing" Dan Winters
    "50 Portraits" Gregory Heisler
    "Sergio Larain"

    I've been in a pictureless funk for a while and am looking for inspiration. Also, I own prints by Sexton and Cratsley and have now been looking at works by Sammallahti and Tice.
