Review

IBPA Ben Franklin Awards: Art/Photography, Gold Medal IBPA Ben Franklin Awards: Coffee Table books, Gold Medal IPPY Awards 2014: Photography, tied for Bronze "A collection of gorgeous, never-before-seen photos from the Columbia Records archive, "Keeping Time" illustrates Hunstein's ability to capture artists relaxing and being themselves."--"BookPage" ..".an irresistible and thrilling retrospective collection of black-and-white photographs documenting performances and historic recording sessions and capturing unique glimpses into the personalities of original and influential musicians...As for Hunstein, he modestly shrugs off the aesthetic, psychological, even metaphorical dimensions of his keenly observant and strongly composed photographs, explaining "I just did my job." Well said. But these portraits of artists at work are, without question, works of art."--"Booklist" "In today's celebrity-obsessed world, most images of stars tend to be contrived, taken in controlled environments. The paparazzi would love the access Don Hunstein enjoyed for decades ... "Keeping Time" is a trove of mostly unseen and intimate black and white images of jazz, rock, soul, and classical greats who recorded on the Columbia label." --"BBC News Magazine" ..".when I pick up a photo book, I want the images to do the lifting ... "Keeping Time: The Photographs of Don Hunstein," a wonderful new retrospective from Insight Editions, accomplishes exactly that ... this coffee table must-have is all meat and potatoes, showcasing the mostly unseen and intimate images of Hunstein, who spent three decades as Columbia Records' official photographer."--"Mother Jones"

Slightly disappointing but a great book. Although there are many truly wonderful photographs in the book which capture very special and often nostalgic moments, there are far too many Columbia artists missing from the book and oddly a few "artists" who,quite frankly, shouldn't have been included. Whenever was Cassius Clay a major recording artist? Curiously interesting though the photo's of Clay may be,many of Columbia's main roster artists are just not included,one thinks of Ray Conniff,Percy Faith and many other great artists. A number of the photographs are quite uneccessarily spread across 2 pages begging the question that perhaps this may justify making it a bigger more expensive book and therefore paying less royalties for using less photographs,who knows?
Don Hunsteins photographs are easy to access online and there are many,many equally good photographs which in my opinon could have been included. This is a huge book with a lot of pages containing only a short descriptive paragraph of the photograph on the opposite page.There should have been more photographs of great interest and less blank spaces to make this book a "must have at all costs" publication.If you don't mind paying for some almost empty pages and double spread photographs then you may love this book, but do check the content of the artists contained as your favourite artist may very well not be included.

Keeping Time is a fascinating look at some of the great musicians of the last century. The photos are stunning and beautifully reproduced. As a collection, the work is subtle and powerful. Don Hunstein is a master photographer, and this book is deeply rewarding.

By Ira S. Stein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We visited Bethel Performing Arts Center in the Carskills. Saw the Keeping Time attraction with many of the great photos in this book. Site of the original Woodstock Festval in 1969. The photos, all the work of talented Don Hunstein features wonderful shots of the great Rtists over a 30 year period. Won't a trip down memory lane. Book is highly recommended.
