Photo Books: Photographer Gift Guide

 Photograph by Michael Pirrocco

Every artist needs some inspiration. These three books make ideal additions to any collection. Plus, all of them are great starts for amateurs, but the pros will drool over their pages just as much.

The Bikeriders
The next best thing to riding a vintage motorcycle? This reissue of Danny Lyon’s work on an American motorcycle crew, with black-and-white moments that stick with you.
