Among my small number of color landscape books, I do have "American Prospects." I didn't list it for two reasons:

This is not to run that book down, it's just one I have some issues with.
Others I have that I could have listed include:
- "Desert Cantos," Richard Misrach. I'm on the fence about this one.
- "The Democratic Forest," Willam Eggleston. Occasionally, I think this is a brilliant book, on the par of "The Americans." Other times, I'm less sure.
- "New Color," Harry Callahan. Callahan was brilliant, but I like his black and white work more.
I likely would have listed Stephen Shore, but I don't have any of his books. :-)
Alex Soth I'm just getting familiar with.
