    Favorte LF B&W landscape photographer books

    Okay, so the guys that shoot color LF are well known. e.g. Dykinga and Muench. However, what about LF B&W landscapes? There are the traditional ones like:

    Ansel Adams

    John Sexton

    Clyde Butcher

    What are your favorite B&W LF photography books? Why?
    Facts are facts; however, perception is reality.

    John Blakemore - Inscape

    He captures the mood and energy of the landscape so well

    Bruce Barnbaum - Visual Symphony

    A celebration of the natural landscape and ancient and modern man made structures in one publication. Quite magnificent.

    Brett Weston - Master Photographer

    My first serious influence

    Thomas Joshua Cooper - Between Dark and Dark

    My second serious influence.

    Edward Weston - every one of his books is a masterpiece for me

    Sometimes I can hear Edward Weston talking to me while I'm taking photos or working in the darkroom. He's usually berating me for being such a hack and not knowing a fine print if I fell over it. But that only happens if I don't take my medication LOL.

    Of the majors:any books by the following-
    Edward Weston - one of the only photographers that IMHO really got it.
    Minor White
    Paul Capignegro (sorry for the poor spelling)
    Bruce Barnbaum - Visual Symphony and Tone Poems I and II
    Don Kirby - Wheatlands
    and of course my little buddy Les McLean.

    Ray McSavaney - Explorations. Not available in stores, you have to get it directly from Ray. Exquisite book. I took my first workshop from Ray, and I learned a lot from him.

    Huntington Witherill - Orchestrating Icons. Deliate prints, very beautiful.

    I've got other books by Don Kirby, Bruce Barnbaum (2), Ansel Adams (2), John Sexton, Morely Baer, etc., but the above two have had the most impact on me photographically.
    Cheers!

    II? It hasn't been published yet - are you talking about seeing the proofs, or are you talking about the individual Opuses in Book I?

    Or did your shopping cart house fall over and smack you in 'da head?
    Cheers!

    Huntington Witherill that's the other name I was looking for. And yes I am referring to the proofs of Tone Poems II. Although I have seen more recent stuff than you have I think.

    I have my shopping cart parked in my newly created double wide refridgerator box emporium.

    If it keeps raining though I am going to have to move into Ian Greant's Stalker Van.

    Eric you aren't wearing your neoprene? Shame on you for wasting good box space when you have no need of it.


    One of my favorites that has not been mentioned is Paula Chamlee, you should see some of her work!
