Re: Good book reccomendations?

Then there's the historical and much more interesting stuff than how to. I like 'The Ongoing Moment' by Geoff Dyer and 'Inside the Photograph' by Peter Bunnell.

The beauty of not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise and is not preceded by periods of anxiety

Re: Good book reccomendations?

A post script to this thread. Checking out Abebooks, Amazon etc, it seems that there's a prolific author called John Freeman who has published some works with confusingly similar titles to Michael Freeman. I get the impression both are good authors in their ways ...

Re: Good book reccomendations?

Not books, but there have just been some excellent tv programmes on BBC4 on photography. Still available on iPlayer.

This is the Photography Season page

The Britain In Focus: A Photographic History with Eamonn McCabe was especially good, as was the On Camera: Photographers at the BBC

Plenty to inspire there.

Re: Good book reccomendations?

If you don't mind e-books there are hundreds on Archive.org Quite a few recent ones among them...
(Link only includes those in 'Folkscanomy: A Library of Books' with 'photography' in the title, related searches will find 1000s more including less relevant NASA reports...)
