PHOTOGRAPHS. 60 Years of Photography. Introduction by John Loring

Brooklyn: Powerhouse Books, (2009). First edition. Hardcover. Oblong 4to. If Harry Benson's photos are surgical in their incisive precision, they are at the same time compassionate, poetic, moving, and frequently downright beautiful in their balanced, compositional perfection, possible Felliniesque in their empathetic embrace of the diversities, and even the grotesqueries, of life and in their cinematic love of the panoramic vision of events. They are embracing, all embracing. Includes Benson's captions and index of images. Simply put Benson got it all, leaving nothing, whether it is a teenage, English schoolboy just smacked in the gut by tragedy or the smiling, then-young queen of England in the unlikely guise of a Scottish coal miner every Benson image records, he points out "what's going on at the time"; and, whether that "what" is historic and life-changing or homely and obscure, he sees the universal and consequential in its specifics, personal as they may be. A very good plus copy (tiny red dot to bottom edge) bound in photo illustrated cloth issued sans jacket. Item #14848
