Photobook Acquisition Syndrome...

I not only love quality fotogrear but books and when photography and books meet it's a hard place to be in.

I just got a copy of The Bang Bang Club. But could I a settle for a cheap used paperback, no. I had to run down a signed 1st edition hardback from a UK dealer.

I tell you friends, the gentle madness, is hard to live with.

But it will go up with my signed copies other war photographer's, David Douglas Duncan and Tim Page.
