I continue to think that one of the great challenges facing the photographic community is to develop an audience outside our own photographic circles. Some of you may remember those great books Looking at Photographs by John Szarkowski, and Examples by Ansel Adams. There is always so much to see in a good photograph when we take the time to really look at it. That's the spirit behind our new book, Looking at Images. This selection of images from the pages of LensWork are the starting point for commentary by LensWork editor, Brooks Jensen. In this first volume of the series, Brooks comments on over 100 images in this exploration of the creative process - a great learning tool for photographers of all levels.
