    Recommend a mono landscape book!

    Hi,

    Could anyone recommend a 'classical' monchrome landscape book that is not:

    Any Weston
    Ansel Adams
    Michael Kenna

    I would also be interested in modern or urban/Industrial landscape work.

    I am strugglling to find much that is not by the above that appeals to me. I know many love Kenna, but I find it very good but without that compulsive pull that the big outdoors stuff has for me. Cant find any Kolbrener or Loranc books available online. Seems they sold out long ago and the few available are extortionate!

    Anyone got any good ideas for work that fits the above desription?

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Big outdoors: Vittorio Sella or Bradford Washburn

    Human landscapes: Fay Godwin

    New ways to look: Ray Metzker, Lee Friedlander.

    Urban: Koudelka


    A lot depends on what you mean by "Classical". It might be time to try "Romantic", "Late Romantic" or even - shudder - "Modern". :-)

    Perhaps one of John Sextons works, Bruce Barnbaum - Tone Poems, George Tice, Paul Caponigro, Don Kriby, Paula Chamlee's High Plains Farm is high on my list.

    Take a look over on Photoeye for ideas...

    Two spring to mind:

    George Tice: Urban Landscapes and Paterson II
    Paul Hamann

    Connecting with the land rather than presenting it as spectacle: anything by Thomas Joshua Cooper.

    Best,

    John Blakemore. Morley Baer. Even Walker Evans if you pick and choose.
    I feel, therefore I photograph.

    One of my favourites is "New England Days" by Paul Caponigro!

    Don McCullin- 'Open Skies'
    Josef Koudelka- 'Chaos'
    Robert Adams- 'Cottonwoods', 'West From The Columbia' etc
    Ray Metzker- 'landscapes'
    Harry Callahan-the retrospective ed by Sarah Greenough is a good starting point
    Mario Giacomelli-'Photographs'-the Italian Bill Brandt
    Minor White-The Eye That Shapes
    Gabriele Basilico
    John Davies
    Mark Power-last 3 for more industrial and urban landscapes
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.

    Well if Kenna doesn't do it for you , you might find this guy doesn't either, but its easy enough to look on his site and make sure.

    Josef Hoflehner. www.frozenhistory.com

    I'd also seconfd the George Tice suggestion, though its rather more retro in style.
