Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
From the use of Kodachrome film in 1936 down to the digital photography of today, David Halpern has been an avid and talented photographer using a camera the way a painter uses his brush and canvas to create memorable and enduring images. Now 128 of those images, some in black-and-white, others in full color, along with an accompanying commentary comprise "Pilgrim Eye", a 168-page tribute to his photographic work and legacy. Enhanced with an informed and informative Foreword by journalist, photographer, and freelance writer Bill Sontag, "Pilgrim Eye" is an especially recommended addition to personal, professional, academic, and community library American Photography reference collections and supplemental reading lists.

David Halpern's book, "Pilgrim Eye" is a must read. OK, I admit it, I know David Halpern and have been lucky enough to share several photo oppertunities with him, but really, this book will touch anyone who has ever taken up a camera with more intent than just taking a snapshot, or anyone who ever has taken a moment to study the grandure of his or her surroundings. The art of a good teacher is to inform without "teaching", and Halpern does that so well, mixing personal observations within a framework of solid photographic skills. Oh--did I mention the photographs? They alone are well worth the price of this book. My guess is that it will be on your coffee table for years to come.

Ansel Adams would have been proud if the photographs in Pilgrim's Eye were his. And prouder still to have authored the text. David Halpern takes us on his journey from a small boy with a box Brownie to an accomplished photographer. But he explains what it is to visualize a picture before you take it, the value of patience, and a personal explanation of the evolution underway from film and chemistry to digital camera and printer. The introduction is personal and moving, disclosing the character in words that is present in his images. These are the pictures of a lifetime: one to be proud of.
