Meetup: Photography Themed Book Discussion

  • Silver Spring United Methodist Church 8900 Georgia Avenue Silver Spring, MD, 20910 United States (map)

There are bazillions of "How to..." books about photography in the world. There are fewer books with photography as a main theme or plot point but no less important a source towards our growth as photographers.

We will meet to discuss a book that involves photography as a key element of the story. Future books may be fiction, non-fiction, biography, autobiography, history or even poetry. Suggestions are welcome.

The book this time will be Reflex by Dick Francis

A classic mystery from Dick Francis, the champion of English storytellers.

"Jockey and amateur photographer Philip Nore knows all too well how it feels to take a tumble from a horse. He also knows what it's like to feel the wrath of furious owners and trainers. You can't always be a winner.

George Millace hated winners. As a photographer he specialized in taking pictures that exposed the failings of riders. But now he's dead - and no one seems very sorry.

But when Millace's home is broken into during his funeral and Nore finds himself helping clear up, he finds something unexpected. Millace had other pictures - ones people will go to desperate lengths to possess.

Now he must find out who wants them - and fast. Because if George Millace's death was no accident then his killers are getting closer..."
-Penguin Books

Dick Francis was a three-time Edgar Award winner, he also received the prestigious Crime Writers’ Association’s Cartier Diamond Dagger, was named Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, and was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in 2000.
He died in February 2010, at age eighty-nine, and remains among the greatest thriller writers of all time.
