5.0 out of 5 stars The Spirit of the Times..., 23 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Everything Was Moving: Photography from the 60s and 70s (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.
