Editorial Reviews

Review

"Whenever I see something I don't quite understand--a shape, a color, an odd juxtaposition of the real and the abstract--nine times out of ten, it's my reason for taking a photograph. For me, taking pictures is like asking questions." --Joel Grey

I wanted to use this book to show my students that the best camera is the one they have with them and demonstrate that Joel Grey used his crummy 1.3MP camera phone to take some great shots... well, maybe if the book shipped with a magnifying glass so you could actually *see* the photos.. I'm not going to comment on the perceived quality of the photography because art, as beauty, is in the eye of the beholder, it's just that my eyes could barely see those teeny-tiny photos printed on the pages of this book.

Format: Hardcover
I was drawn to this book when I first saw it because of its unusual small size and curious cover. I had no idea what was inside. What a wonderful surprise when you open it! The images are unexpected and beautiful. They can be mysterious or funny or sad, all are intriguing and generate conversation. Mr. Grey takes you on a marvelous journey and shows you people and sights you might have missed. You see the world differently after seeing it through his eyes. My grown kids are even buying copies for their friends, no greater compliment. The fact that the photos were all taken on his iPhone adds to the playful, spontaneous feel of the book. It is a delight!

I wish I had Joel Grey's eye.
He can find the most unforgettable images in the most forgettable places.
After this book, I will never be able to look at a pipe or a sign or a wall
or a sidewalk or the side of a house the same way. This book is both an
adventure for the eye as well as a challenge to the imagination. You can't
beat that!

By Jeffrey Marsh on November 19, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Loved this book! The concept was intriguing and the execution was fabulous. I'm not usually one to sit and 'read' a book of images from cover to cover, but I couldn't put this down. I have given it as a gift to some close friends and family and have received rave reviews from all of them. Please do more!
