Notes | This landmark book, a monumental chronicle of the photographic genre created from the chaotic energy of everyday street life, grew out of a fifteen-year collaboration between an esteemed curator and a distinguished photographer. The work of such celebrated masters as Atget, Stieglitz, Cartier-Bresson, Brassaï, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, and Garry Winogrand are presented here, along with extraordinary photographs by complete unknowns. Colin Westerbeck's enlightening text illuminates each of these images.

Comments | [02/06/07] Excellent read...albeit long. How to tell a story and convey a mood without a caption. Well worth the time.

Comments | [01/06/03] This collaboration between curator Westerbeck and Winogrand concrete camera pal Meyerowitz gives us a fantastic overview of street shooting that can't help but remind you of some part of your career. The photographs and text compel the photographer/ reader to re-examine his or her work by showing us the age-old paradigm that everything old is new again. It is a bit disquieting when a turn of the page in this book reveals that your cutting age street shot of today looks eerily similar to something shot in Europe or New York sixty years ago. If you want to figure out how beat documentary work became a transition from early photography to where we are today, this book is a must read and see.
