I am a "color" guy, but do love looking at black and white work. Barnbaum's black and white work is top notch (in my book.) I have a couple of his books and they show his expertise in both composition and printing. This new book is his first in color and the images are from the southwest. I have looked this book over and over. And now this is my opinion, but his color work is so disappointing to me. A couple of things really strike me about his color work. It seems that his compositions in color are woefully lacking, and his use of color and light just is not there. Having worked in southern Utah for a year and having been back there more times that I can count in the last 25 years, I think this body of work to be lacking in so many ways. Has anyone else looked at this book? And if so, am I missing something in this body of work? Again, I really like his black and white work, but this new book is lacking in my opinion. Comments??
