		I agree.  To see an exhibition of some of HCB's portraits a
several years ago at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington proved to
be an overwhelming experience.

		After Paris the exhibition that the book is based on is
touring. If it comes
		anywhere near your neck of the woods go to see it. To be
surrounded by the
		photographs is a completely different experience from
looking at them in a
		book. Salgado's 'Migrations' had the same effect for me.

		I know it is no longer chic to idolize H.C.-B., but having
perused the new
		book, I would challenge any photographer I know to do the
same and then go
		out and do something original!  Ask yourself if your
pictures have any
		narrative content, anything approaching mystery, surprise
and delight, or if
		they make any statement which hasn't been stated by someone
else better and
