5 well-deserved stars. STUNNING photos.

Every photograph in this book is breathtaking; it is a crime that Lillian Bassman isn't more well-known outside of photography circles. If I was pushed to pick one book to introduce someone to her work, this would be it.

Do yourself a favor and learn a little more about this legend while you're at it.
