"A Little Book on Photography"


By Thorsten von Overgaard
Including "The Axioms of Photography"

"The closest I have ever come to writing a poetry book.
It started out as notes in a notebook, and then one day in Hong Kong,
I sat down and put it into this book. I continued the work in Hollywood,
Havana and London, and this is what I put together. I hope you
enjoy every moment of the 2020 pages."

"I just finished reading your
Little Book on Photography. It was like living a sacred romance with the art.
A very enjoyable read.
Thank you."

"It’s a beautiful book, a poem of truth."

"The most inspirational book on photography."

"Encouragement for aspiring photographers interspersed with beautiful images. Probably the most important piece of advice here is to look, observe, find the image before you even look through the lens."

"A feel-good book that will make you want to go photograph."

"Pleasant book to read with great photographs and passion. You will take your equipment from the bottom drawer and give new life."

"What a great book. Every photographer should have a copy!"

"Thanks for the little book. I've been aware of you and your work for a few years now. I'm a photographer in Michigan. At first I wasn't so sure I would enjoy reading this as I typically don't read photo literature, but I gave it a shot anyway. Your writing struck me as unique and different from anything I can remember. But half way through I felt that I was enjoying it quite a bit! I like your ethos and approach to photography man. It seems to me that so many photographers have such high and burdensome philosophy and execution. It's refreshing to read your book. Very minimal with a lot of personality. Thanks for sharing!”

"This ebook has been so useful and inspiring - I have had it for
about 3 years now!"

"It has inspired me to wear my camera again".

"Thanks for all of your inspiring insights and the wisdom in
A Little Book on Photography."

"You make easy what in reality is an art. Really inspiring. It has been a really powerful and deep impulse into photography, inspired by you. Thorsten, it is all in your “A little book on photography.”

"I enjoyed every word, every photograph and every insight. Your style of writing is so involving – there's real passion in your words and also, a lovely flavour of arrogance in that you continue to stand your ground and stay true to yourself. That's professionalism!”
