    I didn't mention it in my original reply, but here's another vote for Sally Mann's Immediate Family. It continues to haunt me like no other book I've ever purchased or looked at.

    I seem to prefer books with pictures AND text (not necessarily related). My favorite of all photo books is Paul Strand/Nancy Newhall's "Time in New England." Also, Weston's "Daybooks," Larry Clark's "Tulsa," and "Teenage Lust." And both volumes of "US Camera Annual, 1941."

    Bill,

    Good choice - Time in New England is one of my faves also. If you like great books with pictures and text, check out "The Photographic Life" by Sam Abell. Great stuff.

    Thanks for the recommendation. After reading your post, I checked Amazon, and found it is $150 (added it to my "wish list"). I'll keep my eyes open for remainders. Bill.

    I highly recommend William Mortensen's _The Model_ and _The Command to Look_.

    One of my favs: Redemption by Floria Sigismondi. Why I like it, I honestly don't know.

    Cheers,
    Chris
