Basically, a photography-as-art book. Some of the pictures are arresting and beautiful but there are also plenty of cliches: third worlders fetching water, toothless farmers grinning at the camera, that sort of stuff. This book is an homage to when 35mm film photography was a slow, quiet process for discovering images that could become expressive art.

This book has a good deal of useful discussion and observations about the creativity that is possible through the art of photography. It does suffer a bit by dwelling on the chemical aspects of film photography, which are now largely archaic. However, the out of date aspects of the book can easily be skimmed and there is much to learn from what remains about the aesthetic aspects of photography.
