But this book also fails to deliver much in terms of a photoessay. The photos were taken for an Esquire Magazine article, and judging from a snapshot montage at the back of the book, those photos would work well in small-size format with blurbs of text. Instead the book shows you grainy blow-ups, coffee-table book size, that fail to hold their own when enlarged and left alone without text. There are no accompanying blurbs of text next to the photos, which would have been very helpful.
Instead (and this put me over the edge), SOME of the snapshots in the montage at the back of the book are numbered and given descriptors. So if you are going thru the book and wondering what the big photo is about--and this happened to me often--you have to go searching in the back for the snapshot of it, find the number, then find the descriptor. If there is a descriptor. Many photos in the book lack any descriptor, so you are left wondering forever who the people are and what the photo is supposed to be about. Frankly, no photo book should ever do this to its readers.
If you are a fan of Jerry Schatzberg, you might like this book. But I don't think this book does justice to his photos.
