Lluis Ripoll SHOWED:
Subject: [Leica] She & She


And this, "She & She" ladies and gentlemen is why you should all buy a copy 
of Lluis book, "INDIGNATION!" The image "She & She" is a tiny sample of an 
incredible collection by a photographer with an amazing "Ability of 
Observation" and capturing the moment! Not once in awhile, but time after 
time, day after day, page after page!

Let me say as a tribute. If Lluis were a shooter at the time of Cartier 
Bresson and many of the greats of "street photography!" We would all have 
copies of Lluis book or books long before now. But he wasn't and today he's 
an unknown in the general world sense. HOWEVER! True, he isn't an unknown by 
us because we know him on a daily basis. He's looked upon as one of the guys 
on the LUG who shoots neat photos! :-)

But in reality without the exposure given to Cartier-Bresson and the others 
at the time when publications were few and the good and great of the day 
were worldly published, we learned of their photography and abilities. 
TODAY? It's a whole new world of happy-snap clickers by the millions. And 
really without the great magazines of the past the chances of Lluis ever 
reaching a Cartier-Bresson status of recognition is quite slim to put it 

HOWEVER! His book "INDIGNATION" is without question, a tribute to the 
talents of a world class photojournalist! Yes I know all of you on the LUG 
have seen his photos day after day. You, me and nearly everyone who looks at 
his photography give many compliments as we see the photos individually, 
certainly a credit well deserved with each and every compliment.

But here is the opportunity to buy a book, that without question, is worth 
every dollar you pay to have it in your hands!
Yes I wrote a small piece at the front. WHY? Quite simple people. Because 
after all my years of experience as a world travelling and published 
photojournalist, I recognized and knew the quality of street photography 
Lluis had produced was and is world class. And I want to do everything I can 
to help Lluis receive the recognition he very well deserves!

So it is with that in mind I'm asking all of you to buy his book! And when 
you are finished looking through it for the 20th or more time and about to 
put it on the book shelf. Put it right along side with the works of 
Cartier-Bresson and the other greats of our time, the "Street Photographers 
of the Day!"

He deserves this kind of recognition. And I have no doubt some of you will 
scoff at my placing him along side Bresson and the others. However I must 
ask you, "Why wouldn't I ? Or why shouldn't I?"  We are in the company of 

Truly, don't be blinded by all the years of promotion of the bygone era! 
"Open your eyes and look at a photojournalist of today!" Lluis Ripoll! A Man 
of Great Observation! Reaction and "CLICK!" And his book "INDIGNATION!"

Have a nice weekend and please everyone order your copies at the same time! 
It's worth every dollar or peso!
