"The Heart of the Photograph is a wonderful book packed with wisdom rooted in experience. David articulates some complex ideas, distilling them into clear writings and poignant questions, and prompting readers to consider what makes photography not only a means of making images, but also a means to a richer life, self discovery, and deeper engagement with the world."
-- Guy Tal, Best-selling author of More Than a Rock

"Duchemin really gets to the heart of what photography is about, and that's not Ζ’ stops and mechanics (there are plenty of other books about those, though largely un-needed). He invites you not just to think about the reasons for shooting and how to make the image work graphically, but to question all these decisions. To be your own critic, which seems to me an essential that is usually missed."
-- Michael Freeman, Best-selling author of The Photographer's Eye

"David DuChemin's new book The Heart Of The Photograph is an emotional meditation on what really matters when we make photographs. His 100 Questions For Making Stronger, More Expressive Photographs are rich food for thought and for the soul. Reading this book will give you time to pause and reflect on what matters most to you and your photography. What could be more important?"
-- John Paul Caponigro
