Jean Loup Sieff made Landscapes ??
Can't beleive it.
Yes, also tv documentaries on, believe this, Death Valley!
His daughter, also photographer, has a website...
A man of many talents as well as being a gifted writer. My copy of his Taschen autobiography - published after his death - is in three languages: Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. I hop around the first two to get the full meaning into my head, and I realised on reading why he appealed so much to me both during and after his lifetime: he has a devilish sense of humour blended with a cynicism that's not bitter but very revealing of what he has exerienced. I feel that in his images. I love the guy.

I have a hard-backed edition which measures 26.5cms x 35.5 cms, weighs a ton, and is beautifully printed. It is my most treasured book of them all. Worth ever €.
Edit: as an aside, I have to report that the bookshop in Pollensa where I used to be able to see and buy many of these tomes has vanished; it was owned by a French chap who also has the newsagent's business across the road from the bookshop. Sign of the times, as mentioned on LuLa in another thread somewhere.
