Post Three: Article on PopPhoto, 26 Books Every Photographer Should Have
From Ansel Adams to Annie Leibovitz, your library is not complete without these books.
By Lindsay Adler Posted June 26, 2009
Below is a list of more than two dozen photography books that would make a good collection for any photographer. We have included some rare books that would be desirable, along with their cheaper alternative.
A well-rounded general photo library would have variety of genres represented to provide visual stimulation and inspiration for any type of photographer and to provide a broad range of the interpretations and practice of photography. It is extremely hard to say what type of library is appropriate for any one photographer, as each individual is drawn to different aspects of photography. This list is meant to be inclusive of photography books that would be of value/interest to any visually motivated person.
