He is a master of the black and white printing process too. The shots of snow and fog, for example,
have a wonderful delicacy to them. Why not five stars then? Because the printing quality of the book
detracts from the photographs. The book is printed on matte paper, and this seriously hurts the gorgeous
solid blacks and gentle grays, which get muddy. I've seen Sallallahti's images on glossy paper, and the tonal range is
much longer, making the images far more beautiful. The other reason the book doesn't merit 5 stars is that it
includes quite a few mediocre images; there needed to be better editing. While some of Sammallahti's projects
are transcendent, others are not compelling, unfortunately. This book is an example of what can go wrong when attempting
to cover a career of image making; the photographer and/or editors cram all the work in, without discipline in choosing
the only the best work. This weakens the book as a whole. For an example of a stronger book, check out Sammallahti's
book in the Photo Poche series; yes, its shorter, a paperback, and smaller, but the superior editing makes for a much stronger
work of art! Overall though, this is a fine book by a photographer who deserves a larger international following!
