A Parade Of Strangers – Eduardo Pavez Goye

Lets delve again into my collection of books (my girlfriend says I have too many, but can you really have too many books?), specifically photography books. This time we have a limited run book by photographer and You Tube Vlogger Eduardo Pavez Goye, I say limited run as he sold it through Etsy on a print run of only 50 copies, of which I managed to get hold of a copy after pouncing on it as soon as could, it sold out very quickly.

Dennis Hopper – The Lost Album

I haven’t done a book “review” for some time, I mean over a year actually (whoops) and as it’s not too long ¬†since Christmas I have a new pile of books to share my thoughts on. OK this book I was actually given for the previous Christmas (told you it’s been a while) but as I’m starting up this series again I might as well continue where I left off. So this book is, as the title suggests, a selection of images taken by Dennis Hopper (yes actor, director, painter, legend and also photographer Dennis Hopper) during the 1960’s. It’s a great piece of history of that time, other than the artistic nature of a lot of the images there’s a huge selection of portraits of famous people that he hung around with from artists and musicians to movie stars and figures of historical importance, there are images of Andy Warhol, James Brown, Jane and Peter Fonda alongside images of Martin Luther King Junior. There’s also a large selection of images of biker gangs (taken before and during filming of Easy Rider) and those of the hippy movement and equality movement’s. In all it’s a great book that shows a little slice of history of the 1960’s through the eyes of an artist of the time.

Robert Capa – The Definitive Collection


This is a little different from the usual post’s that appear on this blog, but as I said a few weeks ago things were going to get mixed up this is the first of what will hopefully be many more post’s about photography books and photographer’s in general rather than just showing my images. (more…)
