What's Yours?

Region: London

Today is World Book Day and what better excuse for curling up with a good photographic book.  At last night's meeting of the Bookworm Club, we started off by discussing On Photography by Susan Sontag, but before the evening was out, we were talking about many of the other photographic books out there.

What recommendations do you have for a good photography book?  Let us know via the comments section below.

London RO, Del Barrett ARPS, gets the ball rolling by recommending 100 Ideas that Changed Photography - a great collection of interesting snippets that starts with the Camera Obscura and races through all sorts of innovations, concluding with GIS, demonstrating the extent to which photography has changed over the last 170 years.

Incidentally, Camera Lucida was also on my reading list - it is interesting to see that these books are still popular photography reading - I must revisit them.

I would be very interested to hear what you thought about On Photography as it was one of the compulsory reading list items on my degree.

Camera Lucida by Roland Barthes
Black and White and Things by Robert Frank
Inflagrante by Chris Killip
Those three books I would recommend.
