It’s a little photographic education on the cheap. Because this is a fairly rare volume, a few other sellers are selling it as a premium. The copy I got was from the thrift store, and it has some minor water damage. It’s for sale at a low price in the market: search for the book. It’s still rare, and in decent shape, but it’s far from perfect.
I’m not a photography enthusiast, nor do I know much about the artform. The only name I really recognize is Robert Frank. Henri Cartier-Bresson’s name came up a lot, but I didn’t pay much attention until I stumbled across this book. Some photos looked familiar, and some of the photos were amazing.
This book is in fair-to-good condition. It has some minor water damage, but the pages are not damaged.

I’m on the lookout for a copy of The Americans. If I find one, I probably won’t list it for a while.

This book was printed for the 1971 MoMA retrospective on Evans’ work. It’s in very good condition with dust jacket wrapped in plastic. Pages are in fantastic condition.
