    Merg, all I can say is "stunning!" Thanks for doing this book. It should be in every serious photographers library. I'm still trying to absorb it all.

    The text is quite enjoyable. I can only imagine myself or my kids setting out alone at such a young age for a cross-continental trip to meet such luminaries! The photos are wonderful. I am so glad to own this book.

    Truly wonderful!

    What a great book ... a fascinating life history and the photos that resulted. An easy read with eye candy ... thoroughly enjoyed it.

    "Beyond Casual Vision" was published in celebration of my 76th birthday, and sixty-plus years as a photographer. My belated thanks to those who have kindly commented here, and to those who have written me personally. Hearing from my fellow exhibitors of decades ago has been an unexpected treat, and recalls the significance of an earlier time. There are still a few of us left!

    It is especially gratifying to see the book announced on this forum, which has provided me with knowledge and friendships over many years. It has been the ideal meeting place to discuss, share, agree, and civily disagree on various aspects of photography.

    With gratitude and best wishes,
    Merg

    I checked the Chronology section of "Beyond Casual Vision" and tomorrow is Merg's 76th.
    Happy birthday Merg.

    Besides the strong and pure vision in the photographs, I found the memoir to be very engaging. I was surprised to see how back then a fresh high-school graduate could knock at the door of so many photography luminaries or instantly sell prints to prominent museums - for 40% of the highest price Weston ever charged. This is maybe the most overdue of any monograph, but it's been worth the wait to learn about Merg's remarkable life in photography. Happy birthday Merg.

    While I have not read the book in its entirety, the photographs are simply stunning. Merg's eye is observant and artistic. As I turned page after page, I kept thinking, this image is great, this image is great, etc. Merg knocks it out of the ballpark. If you haven't ordered this book, get yourself a copy.
