As a practicing film photographer, I loved this book!

This isn't a perfect book, but it seems to be the only one available on this important and intriguing subject. There are so many participants that the narrative often gets diffuse or devolves into a list of which photographers participated in which exhibitions. And of course there aren't nearly enough images reproduced with the text. But she gives a strong idea of the personalities of f.64's main protagonists - I love the image of Imogen Cunningham chewing out Edward Weston for his serial infidelities. And I enjoyed being introduced to photographers like Consuelo Kanaga and Alma Lavenson who were unfamiliar to me.

A good introductory overview for those unfamiliar with these photographers or their work, this book is minutely researched yet far from scholarly. The author's chatty tone (the photographers are consistently referred to by their first names) seems to diminish the narrative; at times it seems like a longish Reader's Digest piece. The details of the actual formation of the group f.64 are quite interesting, but otherwise there's little new if the reader is even moderately familiar with the lives and output of these artists and the social, artistic, and political currents of the era.
