|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
The life of the writer, Frank Waters, with images supporting quotes from his 28 books. |
Set in the American Southwest. This was the focus of my recent artist in residency.
|Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...|
I admire the writing of Jim Fergus, James Salter, Richard Ford, Tom McGuane and Irwin Shaw. Of course Hemingway factors in there somewhere.|
As for photographers, Edward Weston tops my list, along with Paul Strand, Wynn Bullock, Robert Frank, Elliot Porter, Helmut Newton, and E.S. Curtis.
|This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)|
|"A Sport and Pastime" by James Salter, "The Lay of the Land", Richard Ford, "The Last Apache Girl" by Jim Fergus.|
