What I am reading...
I am loving both of these books because they are in interview format. Which means I have been able to just pick them up and read as I please.
If you are into photography at all, then you should read Image Makers Image Takers by Anne-Celine Jaeger. Absolutely brilliant, you gain insight into not only the creative process, but also the business side of photography. So if you ever wanted to know what inspires Mario Sorrenti or Anton Corbijn. Or how the picture editor of the New York Times Magazine, Kathy Ryan, makes the decision on who to hire to shoot the next fashion spread? Or how David LaChappelle's brain works? This is the book for you.
Fashion Now: i-D Selects the World's 150 Most Important Designers has drool worthy photography and asks deep questions such as 'Is designing difficult for you and, if so, what drives you to continue? Awesome.
