A beautiful book full of beautiful portraits. Each portrait, full page or both pages, is followed by the background story, why the portrait was taken, what he was looking for, excuses for unflattering portraits.  This is followed by an explanation of technique that does not spell out everything he did step by step but gives you plenty of information to understand how the portrait was made.   There is something about a print from an 11 x 14 negative that I do not believe can be duplicated by a digital camera today.  I really do not see how an e book could do this justice
