I think this book really does bring Contemplating Reality into the 21st Century. Here is what photographer Jay Maisel had to say about the book:
This is not your usual “how to be a better photographer” book. It takes you into deeper water. It requires investigation and commitment to areas new to you. Among other things, you will think about perception in new ways. If you read this book with care, and without skepticism, it will radically expand your thinking, seeing, and photography.
