On the bookshelf

On other people’s bookshelves

A couple of weeks ago I went along to the PhotOkinawa coffee morning. The group is made up of photographers with many levels of experience, but all have a desire to expand their knowledge, and share their passion for photography.

At the latest meeting everyone was asked to bring along a book that they thought the other members of the group would enjoy. I brought The Americans by Robert Frank. It’s a classic that will be relevant and thought provoking no matter how much the reader or technology evolves. You can check out my thoughts on The Americans in a previous on the bookshelf post.

Here’s a list of the other recommended books.

  1. Wow!! I’d love to borrow a few of those titles to read. Were they all brought along by photographers in Okinawa? How often does this group meet? Might be a good excuse to make a trip to the mainland..
