I like the moments, people and faces caught.

Tom Wood, Photie Man

Published 2005 by Steidl, bought at Le Bal books.

We did our pictures at Le Bal, where they are currently showing “Cinq √©tranges albums de famille”.

Photie man was Tom Wood’s nickname in his city of New Brighton, where he took all these amazing portraits, just walking from his house with his camera, and meeting / looking at people.

Robert Adams, Turning back

Published by Fraenkel / Matthew Marks Galleries, 2005. Can’t remember where I got it, I think it’s at my friend’s, Kai.

As you may already know, I’m very sensitive to Robert Adams work. I have seen this work at Fondation Cartier, here in Paris, 3 years ago.

Nothing much to say about this (very classical) book.

The work is - of course - very impressive.

Just because exhibitions don’t last for ever and that we need to keep memories.

Yanaka Kimi, Photographs 2001-2004

Published 2005, by Sokyu-sha, bought at Claire de Rouen, London £50

Great b&w street photography.

I’m glad we bought this one, even if its cover got very dirty in the shop.

Diane Arbus, Untitled

published by Aperture

This is a book my friend Philippe gave me for New Years. Which is great because i would never have bought this one, so it’s like one of my teacher is showing me something very important in Photography.
