Witness the perfectionist eye of still life photographer Lester Bookbinder. (Click to enlarge.)
Born in New York City in 1929 Lester trained with the photographer Reuben Samberg before opening his own studio in 1955. (Hiro was one of his early assistants).
In the swinging sixties he moved to London and his regular contributions to British Vogue were to prove highly influential.
Examples of his work are hard to find, but this 1976 composition is from an era long before Photoshop and was created entirely 'in camera.'
If you can find links to his work, please let me know.
