Westerbeck, Colin, Meyerowitz, Joel


This monumental work is the result of a fifteen-year collaboration between a celebrated photographer & a curator/critic who succeeded in chronicling the development of a genre of photography created from the chance juxtapositions & the chaotic energy of every day life on the street. Bystander explores the tradition of street photography through the medium's masters--Atget, Stieglitz, Strand, Cartier-Bresson, Brassai, Kertesz, Lartigue, Walker Evans, Helen Levitt, Robert Frank, Diane Arbus, Garry Winogrand, Lee Friedlander, & many others. This exploration reveals much about the development of the craft & creative outlook of photography. The insightful text by Colin Westerbeck illuminates the unforgettable images by over eighty photographers, whose work is by turn confrontational & tender, somber & witty, tough & beautiful. A new illustrated afterword will examine the status of contemporary street photography.Westerbeck, Colin is the author of 'Bystander A History of Street Photography', published 2001 under ISBN 9780821227268 and ISBN 0821227262.
