In my mission to getting inspired by things I decided it was time to buy some books again. Some I had on a wish list for quite some time, others came right out of the blue.
The first one I’m meaning to get for quite some time now is: “Francesca Woodman”. Her images are very inspiring.
The second one I wanted to buy after having seen it at a friend is Paul Outerbridge with the book “Command Performance”. Not a book I would’ve bought without seeing but the images are really impressive and the carbro colour process used to create them is utterly fascinating to say the least. If you feel wet plate collodion is cumbersome, check out the carbro process 😉
Another one is Josef Sudek’s “The Ancient Forest of the Beskids”. His work is absolutely stunning. Never saw that many work by him so thought it would be very interesting doing so via books. I’m very fond of forests and trees in my images, I want to create a whole lot this year on my collodion negatives, so this book seemed like a sure way to go 😉
The fourth and last book I bought is also by Josef Sudek and this one is called: “Poet of Prague”. This contains photos of Prague, the city where he was born, and it’s a beautiful city. I’ve not seen his photos of Prague but went there in, I believe, 2008, so this is an interesting re-visit.
I hope I will get them soon! Have a great weekend 🙂
