13. Dezember 2013 Voices That Matter
After beginning his career as a photojournalist for a daily newspaper in southern California, Dan Winters moved to New York to begin a celebrated career that has since led to more than one hundred awards, including the Alfred Eisenstaedt Award for Magazine Photography. An immensely respected portrait photographer, Dan is well known for an impeccable use of light, color, and depth in his evocative images. In Road to Seeing, Dan shares his journey to becoming a photographer, as well as key moments in his career that have influenced and informed the decisions he has made and the path he has taken. Though this book appeals to the broader photography audience, it speaks primarily to the student of photography-whether enrolled in school or not-and addresses such topics as creating a visual language; the history of photography; the portfolio; street photography; personal projects; his portraiture work; and the need for key characteristics such as perseverance, awareness, curiosity, and reverence. By relaying both personal experiences and a kind of philosophy on photography, Road to Seeing tells the reader how one photographer carved a path for himself, and in so doing, helps equip the reader to forge his own.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Inspirierend 28. März 2014
Von TB
Format:Kindle Edition
Dan Winters beschreibt seinen Werdegang - als Mensch und Fotograf. Was bewegt ihn, wie geht er an seine Themen heran, wie bekommt er die einzigartigen Portraits, die er erschafft. In ruhiger, unaufferegter Weise, die man gerne liest. Inspirierend.

Ich lese gerne Autobiografien von Fotografen - sie geben weitere Ebenen, um ihre Bilder zu lesen. Dieses Buch halte ich für sehr empfehlenswert.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Jetzt schon ein Klassiker ! 27. Mai 2014
Von Hoffi
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Eins vorab: Diese Buch ist anders als andere Fotografie-Bücher.
Dan Winters ist einer der größten zeitgenössischen Fotografen und ein bescheidend auftretender, humorvoller, freundlicher Mann. ( unbedingt einmal Interviews mit ihm lesen)
Dieses Buch beinhaltet mehrere Themen, es ist Teil Biographie ,Teil Lehrbuch und Teil Philosophie.
Es liest sich wunderbar und der durch und durch humanistische Ansatz von Dan Winters in all seinen Beschreibungen und Geschichten fasziniert.
Das Buch ist 696 Seiten stark, aufwendig gestaltet und enthält viele Fotografien von Dan Winters und den ihn inspirierenden Fotografen.
Ich musste lange auf dieses Buch warten, da es sehr schnell und immer wieder vergriffen war, aber das Warten hat sich gelohnt. Eines - wenn nicht das beste - Buch über Fotografie, das ich gelesen habe.

Dieses Buch ist meines Erachtens jetzt schon ein Klassiker !!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen More Like a Mentorship Than a Book 24. Dezember 2013
Von D. Hobby - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I am at a loss for a quick way to describe Dan Winters' just-shipped book, Road to Seeing. That's because it defies nearly any category of photo book I have seen to date.

It's nearly 700 pages long, and is far and away the deepest journey into the photographic process I have ever read. It includes technique, but in the context of the journey covered in this book technique is almost an afterthought. And appropriately so.

Best way I can put it: Road to Seeing is not so much a book as it is a mentorship.


Part of me wants to do the standard run-though of Road to Seeing, to give an idea of its breadth and depth. To talk about the huge number of images it contains—only about half of which were shot by Winters himself.

About how it is a wonderfully detailed manual (a personal journal, even?) of one man's life path to becoming of on the greatest illustrative portraitists of his generation.

About its significant nod to the history of photography and to so many influential photographers who have come before. About its deep journey into the internal process of photography and creativity and craft. About its deep journey into the internal process of photography and creativity and craft.

But another part of me says to just keep it vague and to not ruin the reader's experience by mapping out the book before they begin it.

So instead I'll just say this. The book starts in Winters' childhood and from there explores the decades of layers and experiences that made him into the person he is today. Like anyone's path, his has its moments of randomness. But there is also serendipity, conscious decisions and significant risks taken along the way.

The narrative is, for the first portion of the book, mostly chronological. From there, Winters wanders down the occasional side path looking in-depth at assignments or other types of projects. But he always comes back to the core of who he is, and in that forces you to examine your own core beliefs as a photographer.

Or to recognize that maybe you have not yet discovered your own core beliefs and that it is high time you got started doing so. The thing that leaps out at you throughout, is that this is not randomness at all. It is his continually, consciously chosen path as a photographer.

Road to Seeing is not a book you blow through and exit with a new bag of techniques. It is a book you absorb over time. In fact, I wonder even what percentage of young photographers will possess the mental wherewithal to realize exactly what they are holding in their hands.

I'd like to think this book would have significantly altered my path had I read it as a 20-year-old. But I have to wonder. I was having a lot of fun shooting for newspapers at that age, and probably would not have been ready to hear what it has to say. But boy, does it resonate at 48.

It is very possible that people of different ages (and different points along their own paths) will read this as entirely different books. And will go back to it five years later and see it completely differently.

So in that sense I think it is appropriate for a serious college student. Or a 48-year-old student, as the case may be.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliance, and a heck of a deal 24. Dezember 2013
Von Adam M. Bendig - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
More brilliance from Dan Winters, going beyond just a celebration of his own work. This is truly a weighty tome at nearly 700 pages, it's like sitting down with Mr. Winters over coffee for a period of years, filled with insight and study. Will definitely become a valued reference for me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellence 21. Februar 2014
Von Doug - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I stopped reading photography books years ago ... Then I heard about this. It goes so far beyond "how" - and very deeply into the" why" ... It's a life course in perceiving, and successfully navigating those perceptions in a way that has reinvigorated my passion for the art with an unprecedented level of precision, accuracy, and excellence. I can't recommend it enough.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Will become a benchmark in the field of photography literature 4. Februar 2014
Von Denis Vukosav - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
“Road to Seeing” written and (for the most part) photographed by Dan Winters is grandiose work in which every lover of photography, especially portraits can lose hours wandering through its pages.

Reader’s enthusiasm begins from the moment you’ll take a book in your hands and feel how well-made and expensive this release is. However the best things you will find within its covers, on pages where the author presents all his experience making this book not only great literature that will help you shoot better photos, but also an invitation to journey with the author that will guide you through his rich career.

Dan Winters who was born 50 years ago, besides being multiple times awarded for his works in The NY Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, GQ and Rolling Stone, is mostly known due to his celebrity pictures of Hollywood stars, musical and political world. This is not his first book, photo enthusiasts have already been able to enjoy his book "Dan Winters: Periodical Photographs" and some others but with “Road to Seeing” he goes a step further.

The author shows that in addition to being an accomplished author he is also a great colleague, in order to teach readers he included a series of photographs of other authors that are considered to represent a model according to which photographs should strive. On 700 pages of his book Winters describes the whole process of photography, techniques, art tips, things that will help your creativity and issues that need to be addressed by offering countless examples.

The book has been conceived as life itself, presented in chronological order, starting in his youth, going through the stages of growing up and maturing and we can only hope that before this author are many years in which we will be able to enjoy his photographic art.

What seems to be the greatest value of this book is that it helps every photographer to come up with an answer what actually wants from photography, that helps realizing our own beliefs in order to be able to fully concentrate on them and sharpen our skills to (almost) perfect.

“Road to Seeing” was released a few days ago, but already it is evident that this is a book that will become a benchmark in the field of photography literature in the years to come, both for the author and for his colleagues. Maybe I can only regret that I was not able to read it many years ago when I had a lot more free time and was able to absorb like a sponge everything I read inside.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not quite what i had hoped for. 31. März 2014
Von wasuck - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
First off- i definitely respect Dan Winters as a photographer- he does have a fantastic eye, good concepts, and very, very solid execution. However, i'm going to say, this book did not do all that much for me. It starts off with his life story, and that's fine, and expected. It goes through a whole lot, all the way up until he becomes a serious assistant for a NYC pro-tog. And then it just skips- and basically is like, yep, i assisted for a year or so and then moved to LA, got a sweet studio, booked a bunch of celebrities and never looked back. Wait, what? I don't know, he gets into so much other stuff and then skips a whole lot of other experiences that were probably pretty formative.
There's good little chapters here and there, some more informative than others, some more personal, some more moving, but all in all, it jumps around a bit much.
So i don't know- Heisler's recent book is so much more in my eyes - more eloquent, more informative, and more thoughtful all around. So i don't know, get Heisler's 50 portraits, and if you have money left over, pick this up as well- i mean, it is a beautiful book filled with plenty of amazing images.
