This is one of the best books about photography I have ever seen. What a wonderful project. The idea behind the book is brilliant. The execution - the actual book itself - is sublime. Having a collection of some of the most profound images of our day, with portraits of the photographers, and with their notes about the images, is just a phenomenal idea.

I could not recommend this book to anyone any more enthusiastically. It's great!

I love this book. All my favorite photographers and their famous photo. These polaroids are very impressive and have amazing quality, just like the book. Its a perfect coffee table book. You do not have to be a photographer to recognize the photos and the artists.

Behind Photographs by Tim Mantoani is a photographic document of enormous historic importance. Beautifully photographed with the historic Polaroid 20x24 camera, Tim has shed some light on the photographers who along with their iconic images are preserved in this beautifully printed book.
If you love photography and the history of the medium, I highly recommend this book.
