Subject: [Leica] New Jim Stanfield book

For those of you who are, like me, fans of National Geographic
photographer James L. Stanfield, here's a new book on his work that is
due out in September. Most of his career he has been a Leica user.<br>
He retired a while back, and kept shooting for the magazine. This guy was
described by the director of photography at National Geographic (whose
name slips me but the one before Rich Clarkson) to me as the more
technically gifted photographer at NG. But that doesn't do him justice. I
think he's also a superb photographer in his own right.<br>
Anyway, here's the dope from Amazon: (Not available until

motion, evanescence, fluidity...your camera has a thousand eyes which are
directed by love and feeling.</div>
