My big A.Newman book

Oh my god, I ordered this book from america (by Phillip Brookman/Taschen) and despite it having taken an age to get here, it is probably the single best photography boook I have seen. Full of great angles, ideas and compositions. Really fresh stuff which is saying something as most of his great gritty portraits were taken in the late 1940's / early 1950's.

I think it is quite unlikely that I will ever be able to take photos as good as this guy, but it can't hurt having it there for inspiration and trying eh!
