I recommend that you explore the photojournalism that Martien Van Asseldonk is sharing on Flickr - especially his recent series on Afghanistan.

Germany 2008 - Ben Lerman

Germany 2008_-93, originally uploaded by ben.lerman.

One of my favorite up-and-coming young photographers is Ben Lerman. This particular photograph was recently exhibited at the Photo-Eye Bookstore in Santa Fe, and I fell in love with it.

You can find more of his work on Flickr.

Todd Hido on YouTube

I had the pleasure of meeting Todd Hido at an opening
at the Ventana Gallery in Santa Fe earlier this spring.
During a gallery presentation he gave about some of this work,
he held a copy of his Between the Two in his hands. The
way that he held the book and described the effort that went
into creating it, I just had to include a copy in my collection.

Zoe Strauss - America

Another new addition to my collection of photography
books is the recent release of Zoe Strauss' America.
This lady rocks.
Many of her photographs, including the complete America
portfolio, are available on Flickr .

Richard Renaldi - Fall River Boys

One of my personal favorites this season is Richard Renaldi's
Fall River Boys. Not only are the photographs
outstanding, the quality of the book is top shelf.
