Book Recommendations?

I recently picked up the book Annie Leibovitz at Work from the library. In this book, Leibovitz describes how her pictures were made, but more from a memoir standpoint than a technical one. It has me curious what other books are out there that are a little more like a memoir or biography (or autobiography), and about photography and photographers. Anyone have any recommendations?

Re: Book Recommendations?

Walker Evans at Work

This is nice as it talks about how Evans worked and the gear he used and also provides some of the shot versions and croppings and other experimentation.


and I have a MOMA book about Carteir-Bressan that talks about his travels and projects

There are a few about Dorthea Lange as well
