"Like gold nuggets amongst pebbles, the more than 200 images reproduced in this book include many of transcendent beauty and psychological insight, all with the magical, mysterious charge that comes from using our own imaginations to spectulate on the circumstances in which they were taken. Superbly produced with an introduction by internationally bestselling author William Boyd and with texts by the photographic and print historian Robert Flynn Johnson, this is a photography book whose very anonymity makes it unique."
