Platon is an absolute favorite of mine and I was thrilled to get this book.
The images are from an assignment he did for The New Yorker, so I had seen many of the portraits before...but never like this. Each photograph is as stark and rare as the one before it. The portraits are so raw and precise that it's hard not to stare and wonder how that "session" came to be. What other photographer has assembled Vladimir Putin, Barack Obama, and Muammar Qaddafi in one series of photographs? There is a true human presence in these images that should cause you great pause.
Truly incredible work from a brilliant photographer.

This book is a great collection of strangely intimate pictures. They feel so close, I sometimes felt almost a little embarassed to get such a close view of the person.

Nice contemporary images. Especially if you love to see every pore and a look of slight "subject" discomfort based on the obvious photographic intrusion required for the "look"...

Just like the New Yorker originals.

I've nothing to add.
