this book is great. Wim Wender's opening prose about the art of photography is worth the price alone. delve into the book further, and you are gifted with some really great travel documentary photographs with short prose describing the images. i like this, as a photographer, i am often very interested to hear the story behind the photographs. the art of the slide show presentation is a lost art in america yet this book somehow evokes that type of discovery and storytelling.
featuring both color and black and white photographs, and many of them done as a series, the book's paper texture and image reproduction is top notch.
the physical size of the book is perfect-it's easy to pick up and read or carry with you, and the images are easy to view.
in many ways, this book seems very cinematic. being a film director, Wender's sees each still image as the first frame of a movie and it shows.
