Check out this small selection of recommended books (from my bookshelf). Head to the BLOG to have a read about a few of them.
The Suffering of Light
Colourful, complex and stunning street photography. No light was harmed in the making of this book.
The Palaces of Memory
Wonderful reportage. A love letter to Indian coffee houses. Put the kettle on before you look through it!
Pioneering colour photography. Pages of interesting observations and beauty in the mundane.
Gritty and a bit grim, yet utterly fascinating! Who says you can't have a pop of colour in 1980s Glasow?!
Women Street Photographers
Super compilation of 100 contemporary women street photographers for all over the globe...
Street Photography Now
Sophie Howarth + Stephen McLaren
Bargain of a book introducing street photography and a wide range of street photographers.
Another must-have by Alex Webb! This time dedicated to the streets of one city. Spoiler in the title...
Think Like a Street Photographer
Easily digestible and insightful chapters on all things street from a contemporary master.
100 Great Street Photographs
Great compilation of street photography with good photographers biographies too.
A classic! It's a small book but full of "snaps" of America in glorious grainy monochrome.
