It's been on my reading list for a while. I prefer to judge photographers based on a series of images (monograph) rather than the 'greatest hits' collections so Propos de Paris appealed to me, for at least appearing to be bound by a theme. I like the look of the portrait book suggested, but not sure if this is indicative of his personal style? Rather it seems to be commercial work. Perhaps one for aficionados then.

I know the feeling of not liking every picture in a monograph - I'm personally not sure of some of Harry Callahan's in the book I have on him, but it's still one of the best books I own.

I'd like a good book of Bresson's work, but maybe this isn't the one.
