Ese libro aparecio en un contenedor de basura junto con una bolsa llena de legos!!! Obvio que los pepene jaja!! De no se por ello, jamas hubiera apreciado los paisajes en blanco y negro de manera obsesiva... por desgracia ese libro tuvo un desenlace tragico al igual que ese de lou reed que me costo... $40dls.!!! que mal trip... injusticias de la vida??? agh!! bueno, como diria un amigo...algunos libros tienen su orgullo, los muy chinches se van y no regresan.. pfff!!!
A master at work and work displayed. One of if not the best in his field.

Though wilderness and the environment were his grand passions, photography was his calling, his metier, his raison d'etre.
