Several of Hedgecoe's subjects reappear in Photographs by Snowdon, but then, Snowdon, n\'e9 Anthony Armstrong-Jones, has been a professional photographer just as long as Hedgecoe. He is in touch with the beautiful people as well as the talented--Princess Di, trendy designers, and youngsters whose primary claims to attention seem to be their looks appear in his pages and not Hedgecoe's. Snowdon is in Hedgecoe's book, by the way, and both men divergently portray sculptor Henry Moore with an image of his hands as well as others of his face. Snowdon is far more highly conceptual than Hedgecoe, and on the evidence of the dozens of arch and theatrical depictions here, he works far more in the studio. He leavens the book's predominant frivolity with stark pictures, taken on journalistic assignments, of poor children, mental illness, and urban incidents. Ray Olson
