Présentation de l'éditeur :
"This book shows – aside from very few images already published in our large scale book At home from 2011 many more exceptional images e.g. of American luxury cars of the 1960s/1970s.
The great documentary photographers were essentially invisible. Your gaze went directly to the subject before the camera, and only later did you think about point of view, lighting, and other considerations that might have gone into the making of the picture. From the twentieth century we think of Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine, Eugene Atget, Berenice Abbott, August Sander, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Roman Vishniac.
Like many of his predecessors, Bruce Wrighton carried a large format tripod-bound view camera. He regularly ventured into downtown Binghamton, NY, his home city in the 1980's, where he created a perfect, transparent window revealing immense amounts of detail that even the best human eye could never detect. A torn thread on a sweater, a worn out chair in a bar, the songs on a glowing jukebox, the turn of a head and the twist of a jaw. And he did it not like the masters listed above, he did it in color, making his own prints as well.
Bruce Wrighton has left us a great legacy of humanistic, clearly seen and vividly colorful prints that capture the soul of a city well beyond its best years. He opened a window with which we could climb through with little effort, but with great reward. His considerable achievement is gradually being recognized and celebrated. Though his time was short, succumbing to cancer in his 38th year, he left us with timeless images."

Présentation : "Tokyo is a visual journey through a city at once futuristic and obsolete, its visionary design worn out – like that of a past era. Johanasson uses photography to index the city, finding form and pragmatic order through accumulation and sequence, revealing the city's hidden, modular logic: lego-like segments, a basic square unit repeated...
