oh, I'm off to Borders/Waterstones at lunchtime to peruse photography… - almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea
if I had to explain, you wouldn't understand
oh, I'm off to Borders/Waterstones at lunchtime to peruse photography books for my session at Photocamp.

I think I'm going to choose a selection of 'classic' photos, as well as some more modern portrait shots. I've seen a couple I really like on Rankin's website - close-ups of just the face, but try and get the same feel with your average Leeds Photocamper, rather than, say Ewan McGregor.

watch out, some of the photos on his site are a bit NSFW. Not that we'll be trying any of them...

I now need to work out how best to do this - first thought would be to scan/print the images onto A4 (saves me carting my huge copy of The Photo Book) into Leeds and let people choose. I suppose it all depends on how many people I get at the session - if it's just a couple, we may struggle with anything other than portrait stuff

Anyhoo, these are the kinds of things that have been suggested thus far:

Christine Keeler

Some of Bailey's portraits: Jagger

The Krays

Michael Caine

Lennon & McCartney

then a couple of others
Doisneau's Kiss

Feininger's Photojournalist

and a classic Hepburn shot

still open to other suggestions...

I have an A5 copy of 'The photobook' I can bring with me, if that helps.

that'd be useful, ta. I've got a copy of the big hardback edition (K's I think, I don't remember buying it) and was thinking about picking up a small one to bring with me.
