On the Move Great Transporation: Great Transportation Photographs from Lifeby Jennie Hirschfeld (Author), Maryann Kornely (Author), Life Gallery of Photography (Author). Summary: On the Move takes a nostalgic journey through twentieth-century transportation as documented by LIFE and other photographers and complemented by writings from the centurys authors. Airplanes, trains, bicycles, rickshaws, sailboats, ocean liners, automobiles, even the ZeppelinAlfred Eisenstaedt, Carl Mydans, Andreas Feininger, Margaret Bourke-White, George Silk, and others captured memorable images of these ingenious inventions.

This book explains the basics of taking photographs, how the camera and photographer become a team to make a photograph that people will actually want to see.

The author begins by explaining how the camera and lens work and them he discusses what the role of the photographer is to make the photo. All this is done in lay terms without long technical dissertations. This is a very good book for beginning photographers who want to move beyond taking snapshots

Their move may be job-orientated or perhaps they think the grass is greener somewhere else. Whatever their reasons, it's dear that more and more people are stepping into the unknown and leaving their own country.

Their move may be job-orientated or perhaps they think the grass is greener somewhere else. In Britain alone, over 400,000 people make the move out of their country each year. But where do they go and why?

If it moves, shoot it. Daniel Okrent's intro suggests that photographers love to capture the moving image but only to stop it for a fraction of a second and produce a brilliant photo. With nearly a hundred black and whites from thirty-six photo-journalists I thought this was a remarkable collection of (frozen) moving images.

Life readers with good memories will remember some of the classic shots in these pages: moving day in Lakewood, California taken by J R Eyerman in 1950; Margaret Bourke-White's beautiful 1939 shot of a DC-4 flying over a pin-sharp Manhattan; Andreas Feiniger's Route 66, Arizona from 1953 or the eighty members of a water-ski club being pulled by a power boat for a nautical mile and creating a record in Queensland, Australia, taken by Arthur Mosted in 1985.

Movement in the broadest sense was the editorial remit so you'll see gondolas in Venice, trolley cars in Chicago, a ski lift in Italy, speed trials in Utah, liners in New York and two members of the Berlin Train Society enjoying some toy trains in 1931.

All of the photos look wonderful because they're printed in an impressive 250 screen as duotones on matt art paper (printed in Germany helps, too) with a design by Pentagram. I thought this was an impressive looking book of mono photos that really delivers the title: on the move.

Life Magazine's photography editors chose well, and the imagery is effective still. Some, but not all, of the world's best photographers - through the early 1960's - are in this book. This is a comparatively small (8 x 10 and under 150 pages) assemblage of great black and white photos and brief quotations, mostly one and two-liners, relevant to various modes of transporatation. Like the original Life, you look at the fantastic pictures first, and read second. Whether or not you agree with Daniel Okrent in the Introduction that "photographers like things that move," these are great, varied pictures. Commuters on the New Haven Railroad, Nov. 22, 1963 (headlines: "President Shot Dead"), German men assembling electric toy trains in 1931, Irving Schild's photo of a bicyclist who is carrying an impossibly tall stack of newspapers in Mexico City, construction workers pouring out of the QE II at the end of the work day (John Loengard, 1968). Drive-ins, airshows, the open road (with the cumulus clouds that Life's editors loved). Many, many more.
The feeling is less nostalgic than archival. And this time around, all photographers are identified. Great photos. Transportation buffs and at least several dads and grandfathers I can think of would enjoy this book a lot.
