For the last quarter-century photography has not only been exhibited in major galleries and museums worldwide, but has also served as material for artistic and philosophical reflection. In the vast number of books and articles devoted to photography we usually find either a historical excursion into the history of photography, or studies on the work of individual photographers. It is almost impossible to find books where the author discusses specific shots, although this would seem a fascinating and intriguing subject. Articulation of the direct perception engendered at the moment of contact with a particular photograph is a subtle and complex task. In this sense' Alexander Budberg's Photo Album' is a unique publication.

In this sense' Alexander Budberg's Photo Album' is a unique publication.

As regards the choice of material, this is the best of the best in world photo journalism. The book is also interesting because the author constructs a story about each photo in turn. Budberg's essays recount the history of his creative process and moreover touch on extremely important social, political and psychological issues that currently concern all of us, our country and the entire world. At the same time he gives an astute analysis of the structure and texture of each photograph as a work of art.

There is a compulsion to read'Alexander Budberg's Photo Album' in one sitting, however impossible that may be. Just as a photograph -151; a moment frozen in time -151; has the magical quality of developing within us beyond the frame, demanding the duration of experience and deliberation, similarly Alexander Budberg's texts extend beyond the borderlines of their genre, although apparently bound to the individual photographs and themes central to the author's contemplative essays. Alexander Budberg's book will bring genuine pleasure to anyone who loves photography and all those involved with it in some way, both photographers and the viewing public.

For those who never felt drawn to photography this book is the key to a whole new dimension, a chance to focus your vision in order to look and see, feel and think. Although familiar with nearly all the photographs reproduced in this album, now I could view them in a different light. I hope very much for a follow-up to'Alexander Budberg's Photo Album'.
