    Recently fallen in love with Bernard Plossu's work via two books - Europa and The Still Hour. Aware that he has a rather extensive back catalogue of monographs, any recommendations ?

    Have my eye on Vamanos for when I can get it at a good price, and also So Long - but that's quite expensive on the used market at the moment.

    Also appears to be a lot of video content for him on youtube in French but unfortunately mon francais est tres tres mal...

    "New Mexico" is not bad even if could have been better printed. If desert is your thing, you should like "Garden of Dust".

    For color pictures (and Fresson process in particular), "Couleurs Plossu" is the book to get.

    "New Mexico Revisited" by Bernard Plossu is a great book. I highly recommend it. All of the photographs in that book were taken with a Nikon SLR and a single 50mm lens, the results were superb!.

    For most (all ?) of his B&W work I think he uses a Nikkormat, 50mm and Tri-X.

    Thanks @JimCee and @Dali for the book recommendations, will check them out

    Yes, his dedication to Nikkormat and Nikkor 50mm is well-known but he also used toy cameras.
