I'm going to have to hammer this one: before I started typing I read the sales ranking and it just made me more angry.
OK: First thing. How can this book be so popular? Something is suspicious here, and I'm first talking about totally non-subjective matters. This is a book of images from the DOMAI website, correct? OK, that is a very nice website. It's beautiful and the images there are beautifully presented. And you can go there and join the site and see all (or most) of these photos presented in beautiful, very large (3000pixel?) format that if you MUST have printed, you can print yourself and hang on a wall. SO WHY would any sane person instead buy a book of those same photos that costs nearly twice as much as a site membership and that is absolutely ))) TINY ((( in dimensions?? Understand what I'm saying people, the photos in this book are presented in generally 4x6 inch format (think: prints from Walgreens). Many are much smaller than that. Yes, there are a few that are slightly bigger, but in a book that is less than 8 inch high (huh?!?), the limits are serious. Add to that, the print quality: There is often a color shift to green in the printing (at least in my copy) and the highlights are frequently blown out. Poor printing! Honestly, this book is pretty tragic. So, as I asked, what sane person would buy it? Well, I did, based on the Amazon Sales Ranking and all these "5 Star" ratings from people here. I cannot understand this one at all. My guess would have to be that DOMAI, the site, has asked or coerced some select site members to write nice reviews. I'm being very straight here: I like the DOMAI site very much, but this book is just plain awful and that's on the technical merits alone.
On the subjective.. though 20 odd photographers have contributed, I challenge you to tell one's work from another. Impossible. The editor obviously likes ONE specific type of photograph and only that one, because that's what's in this collection again, and again, and again.. about 400 times! And that "one" photograph is a simple snapshot of a very thin, young girl around 18 years old without any make-up or clothing standing outside in a natural environment. Nice, but after 400 times? Monotonous, IMHO.
But that's subjective and everyone's taste is different. Maybe 400 nearly identical and poorly printed snapshots are your thing and you'll love this book. But for me, the technical failings alone are enough to kill it before I have a chance to notice the monotony. If 0 stars were available, that's what I'd give it.
