Hi,

does anybody of you know where I can find Nestor Almendros' book "A man with a camera"? I've been looking on amazon, etc. But it's just too expensive to buy them used there. Any ideas would be appreciated.
I just want to read this book. Can someone tell what he's writing about?

Can't find it at a university library? Or get them to get a copy on loan from another library? I suspect almost any film school has a library on campus with a copy.

It's an autobiography of his development as an artist, with most chapters covering a specific film that he shot. Not overly technical, mostly about his views on cinema, art, lighting, American vs. European filmmaking, etc.

No I didn't find it at my university library and other public libraries. But now that you mention it, our "Film Museum" has a fair amount of books on the subsject. Hopefully I'll find it in their library!

Thanks David!
