    Go to the library and look up photographers' autobiographies. I know that both Ansel Adams and Edward Weston wrote them, I'm sure there are other photographer biographies out there.

    Are you looking for comments on why they shot specific images? Those might be hard to dig up. The biographies probably have some, but I think you will have to scan through a lot to find them. I haven't really seen a book myself where the photographer does a running commentary on the images the way a director might do for scenes on a movie DVD. Finding info on their general approach will probably be easier.

    Look for this one at the libary if you're looking for full explanations of what the photographer was doing/thinking about each picture.
