Another in an irregular series of suggestions for the photographic bookshelf. My selection this time is the Aperture monograph of the work of Ralph Eugene Meatyard, but you may substitute that one book that made you realize new and different things about your medium; that changed your ideas about what photography could be. I also briefly examine the work of my mentor Neil Rappaport and note a panel discussion by Neil’s former students (including me!) that is taking place this coming Saturday, October 21, in Bennington, VT.
