Product Description

This book has been published by the Barbican Art Gallery as part of the exhibition Everything was Moving: photography from the 60s and 70s. It features 12 key figures including Bruce Davidson, William Eggleston, David Goldblatt, Graciela Iturbide, Boris Mikhailov, Sigmar Polke, Malick Sidibé, Shomei Tomatsu, and Li Zhensheng as well as important innovators whose lives were cut tragically short such as Ernest Cole, Raghubir Singh and Larry Burrows. The world changed dramatically in the 1960s and 1970s. From the Cultural Revolution to the Cold War; from America's colonialist misadventure in Vietnam to the indelible values of the civil rights movement; this was the defining period of the modern age. It also coincided with a golden age in photography: the moment when the medium flowered as a modern art form. Everything Was Moving: Photography from the 60s and 70s presents some of the most inspiring voices in 20th century photography, in order to reflect on the world then - and now. As well as a comprehensive collection of photographs from each of the artists included in the exhibition the book contains essays from the exhibitions curator Kate Bush and Sean O'Hagan, Tanya Barson, T.J Demos, Helen Potrovsky, Boris Mikhailov, Ian Jeffrey, Julian Stallabrass, Robert Pledge, Manthia Diwara, Shanay Jhaveri and Raghubir Singh.

Format: Hardcover
This is the catalogue for the exhibition running at the Barbican Gallery in London until January 2013. It features work by a dozen international photographers: Larry Burrows, Ernest Cole, Bruce Davidson, William Eggleston, David Goldblatt, Graciela Iturbide, Boris Mikhailov, Sigmar Polke, Malick Sidibé, Raghubir Singh, Shomei Tomatsu and Li Zhensheng. I knew very little about some of these photographers and the essays in the book supplement the information in the show, providing historical context, biography and critical assessments. The photographs are beautifully reproduced. While I would point you to the show first before recommending the book this is a powerful survey of photography of the 1960s and 1970s and much of the work is a harrowing reminder of past injustices. The range of subjects from documentary photographs of the Vietnam War, the Cultural Revolution in China, the Civil Rights marches of the US, Apartheid South Africa to more experimental works from Mexico, Russia, Japan and India. Highly recommended.
