Blimey this is good. Sparkling critical writing – lent to me by my friend Dualtagh Herr. And wrestling throughout with the big question for critics: does writing about art diminish it? The book’s assembled from essays and reviews published all over the place and it makes such beautiful use of the photographs themselves. Adams reminds me why I became a photographer (I am, still, at least nominally a photographer – and I do have a degree in the subject FFS). Buy Why People Photograph from Amazon.
