I like Kalvar's work very much and looked forward to the publishing of this title. Unfortunately the majority of photos are ruined by the design decision of running across the gutter of the book.

Although the photographies are great, you can't enjoy at all because of the book design. Almost all photos are cut in the middle, just because they are printed at double page, ruining the photo...

It should be better in a landscape design book... Not recommended to buy if you want to see the beauty of these images...

It's a pity!

Just when you thought the tradition of Frank, Cartier-Bresson, Winogrand and other modernist masters was a fading, flickering light, out of nowhere (or Paris, evidently) comes this brilliant collection of photographs! Poetic, wry, witty and complex, Kalvar's photographs limn the absurdity of life without resorting to sarcasm or slapstick. It's this tightrope act, and Kalvar walks it with grace. I disagree with reviewers that did not like the layout of the book... I think the layout enhances the experience of the work, giving the book a rhythm, and making the images flow like music. A must-have.

I can't believe how many people are upset about something so petty as the photos running across a 2 page spread. I feel this format has worked well for many great street/documentary photography books, including Bruce Gilden's "Facing New York," Gilles Peress's "Telex Iran," and Jeff Mermelstein's excellent "Sidewalk." The 2-page spread really lets you see the detail in the pictures. Putting equivalent size images in a "landscape" page format would lead to one big unwieldy book. Anyways Richard Kalvar is a genius in subtlety, and the work in this book makes it definitely worth owning.

[[ASIN:2080300091 Earthlings]I love Richard Kalvar's photos. I am amazed that he is able to record people going about their regular lives - nothing is posed in any of his photos. And I particularly like the joy that spills from the scenes.
Definitely a book to be kept close at hand to remind us we are all part of the human race!
