I received my signed copy of "Across the Ravaged Land" about ten days ago and can happily report that it is an outstanding volume and beautifully printed. It certainly demonstrates Brandt's passion for his subjects and meticulous attention to detail that no doubt required very many hours of hard work. His comments about using film vs digital (incidentally he used a 60 megapixel Hasselblad side by side with the Pentax and found the digital images to be too perfect) confirmed the emotion and feeling he has for his subjects. It is a worthwhile addition to my library.
