This is the first anthology dedicated to one of the greatest American photographers of the twentieth century, Dennis Stock. A Magnum photographer, Stock was a photojournalist particularly renowned for his photographs of James Dean and of jazz musicians in the 1950s. Complete access to Stock's archive was granted for this book and several of these images are never-before-seen. This coffee table tome is a stunning tribute to his immense talent. Michael Pritchard is Director-General of The Royal Photographic Society.

Review:

'This classic photo essay on California captures the contrasts of the state and its people, from the mountains of the Sierras to the sands of the coast, from the people on a spiritual quest to those doing research at the cutting-edge of technology, all during time of intense political, cultural and social exploration in America's history.' --Independent on Sunday

'Includes some of the late snapper's most striking images, among them his 1955 shot of a then unknown Dean walking through Times Square in New York.... We have his amazing photographs as evidence to remind us of the range of emotion and experience captured so poetically by his photographers' eye and sensitivity. He really was one of a kind.' --Daily Mail

'Another hip coffee table volume [from RAP]... That title is no accident... it contains some of the coolest imagery and people of the mid-20th century.' --Restro To Go

'Dennis Stock's best images of American life in the time of Woodstock, from stage invasions to Planet of the Apes fanatics, Louis Armstrong gearing up for a gig and an unknown James Dean in Times Square.' --The Guardian

'Another hip coffee table volume [from RAP]... That title is no accident... it contains some of the coolest imagery and people of the mid-20th century.' --Restro To Go

'The Magnum photographer documented just as poetically subjects from newly arriving immigrants to the jazz greats and, here, not only the elegance of the building, flooded with light from its glass canopy, but also the glorious contrast between guests dressed up to the nines and the informality of his fellow snappers.' -- The Independent on Sunday

Book Description Reel Art Press, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The first anthology dedicated to one of the greatest American photographers of the 20th century, Dennis Stock, during his most celebrated period of the 1950s-1970s. Undisputedly one of America s greatest photographers, in early 1955 Dennis Stock captured one of the iconic images of the 20th century: the black-and-white image of the unknown James Dean walking across a deserted Times Square, trademark cigarette in hand, a brooding and introspective figure hunched into his oversized coat, braced against the rain and set against the backdrop of the Manhattan skyline. Stock took a series of photographs in New York, Hollywood and in Dean s hometown of Fairmount, Indiana. Stock went on to photograph Marlon Brando, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn resting her head on a car window on the cusp of fame, JFK on the campaign trail. His catalogue of work throughout this period reflects his ability to empathize with his subjects but not become subservient to them. In the late 1950s, Stock s focus shifted to the leading jazz musicians and performers of the day; this book contains some of the best photographs ever taken of artists such as Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Miles Davies and Louis Armstrong. This book is a beautiful tribute to Stock s timeless legacy and complete access to the Stock Archive was granted for this stunning 288-page edition. Seller Inventory # AAT9781909526020
