    Very nice. I see a real connection with your own work, Merg, and Brett's too.

    Merg,

    This is an excellent book. The only problem is that I now want to see these prints in person and I am across the continent.

    When I read the intro about house building, I immediately wondered about Brett Weston's house. The closing gave me my answer.

    My favorite line though is "Like all artists worth their eyes, he worked until he got it simple." It relates to a quote that I learned by Antoine de Saint-Exupery many years ago and still struggle with mastering, “Perfection is Achieved Not When There Is Nothing More to Add, But When There Is Nothing Left to Take Away”. It loops back to my thoughts on the book about your father in relation to simplicity through a Zen Class 36 years ago and Shenryu Suzuki's and "Zen Mind, Beginners Mind."

    Wonderful book! I have to look at it again, there are images which remind me of the work of a number of your father's contemporaries, some of whom probably influenced him, and perhaps some influenced by him. I also never realized that you were born with photography in your blood! To repeat, wonderful work.

    Thanks for posting. I really enjoyed the book. I was surprised and delighted to see the lead photo was of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala from 1970. I was there in the early '70s as the assistant on a travelogue about Guatemala. Did your father ever make it to Chichicastenango?

    Merg,

    Congratulations and many thanks for the link to your father's eBook. I bookmarked the link so I can go back through his images again and again. Impressive work!
