Here are some of the books on photography that I really enjoyed and that helped me understand the nuances and complexities of this great art. The books on this page are textbooks by various CRITICS and AUTHORS. Full disclosure - I am an Amazon Associate and will receive small commissions if you follow the Amazon links and buy any of these books. Any commissions will be donated to charity and the list hasn’t been produced to earn money - I genuinely rate highly, all the books mentioned. (In some cases, I have included my own reading notes, for my records - apologies for the almost indecipherable scrawl, if you choose to read them!).
