Without the cooperations of all the photographers who allowed me to reproduce work, this book would not have been possible:

Jack Bailey, John Bain, Courtney Blash, Sonja Bowden, Peter Brutschin, Martín Colomés, Michelle Courteau, Ludwig Danner, Dieter Decker, Chel Delaney, Andy Feltham, Gordon Hart, Norbert Heyers, Klaus Homann, Graham Jones, Dave Jordano, Megumi Kamiya, Matt Kay, Carol Kazmer Liffman, Lars Nordström, Henrik Normann, Alan L. Oslund, Rainer Perrey, Dariusz Prasalski, Michiel Schierbeek, Geoffrey K. Smither, Hans-Bernd Steffens, Krystina Stimakovits, Jack Toolin, Paul Turner, Astrid Westvang.

I particularly wish to thank Paul Dobraszczyk for the fine introduction and Mika Okawa for the superb design and production of the book.

Finally, I am indebted to my wife, Xu, for her patience and encouragement.
