Jock Sturges: Notes
Jock Sturges has for long been an icon of photography. The American who became famous by taking beautiful large format images of young man, women, and children, mostly on beaches in France. His images became famous for their natural beauty and technical perfection.

“Notes” is not only a beautiful crafted review of Sturges work over a longer period of time, showing images in color and b&W. It also gives a very interesting insight into the way Sturges worked and approached his subjects, from the polaroid draft image to the perfectly crafted end result.
Beautiful Photography without any vulgarity or kitsch. Highly recommended for a reasonable price. The book can be purchased here.
