Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Author/photographer Koch, founder and CEO of Forma, the International Center of Photography in Milan, has compiled a significant collection of images from well-known masters and contemporary photographers from around the world in a portfolio binding. Arranged according to 12 themes—reportage, war, portraits, nudes, women, fashion, art, travel, cities, still life, sports, and nature—his work features 250 photographs by 210 photographers, including Ansel Adams, Bruce Davidson, Richard Avedon, and Herb Ritts. Each image is beautifully reproduced and paired with an intriguing commentary and brief biography of the photographer. The collection is distinctive owing to the number and variety of photographers and images featured, as well as for the insightful observations that tell the story behind the images. VERDICT The book itself resembles a box with a portfolio binding that suggests a box of photographs readers will want to open again and again. Essential for all photographers, professional and amateur alike, and all who love photography.—Lisa Block, Atlanta\
