'Life as it unfolds in front of the camera is full of so much complexity, wonder and surprise that I find it unnecessary to create new realities. There is more pleasure, for me, in things as they are.' - David Hurn David Hurn (b. 1934) is one of Britain's most important reportage photographers. His documentary photographs are distinguished by their quiet observation and remarkable insight. Released to coincide with Magnum photo agency's seventieth birthday, this is the first book dedicated to Hurn's photographs from Arizona. 'In 1979/80 I was awarded a 'U.K./USA Bicentennial Fellowship'. This was a one year award to photograph in America. I chose Arizona - it is the most right wing state in America, plus it is the driest State in America. The exact opposite of my home country Wales. The contrasts appealed to me.' Hurn fell in love with Arizona and made several trips back between 1979 and 2001. Hurn's greatest subject is ordinary people pursuing ordinary passions and in Arizona he tur

Genre: Country music
In 1969, at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, American music changed for ever. Bob Dylan, the most daredevil spirit of the rock era, took the stage for the first time with Johnny Cash, country music superstar. This show at the temple of country music, The Grand Ole Opry, was the most public evidence of a collision of styles which first occurred in the mid-1950s and has sent shockwaves through American music ever since. Country Rock, as played by the Byrds, the Eagles and Gram Parsons, was to become the dominant style in American music during the 1970s.
"Timing, skill, and talent all play an important role in creating a great photograph, but it is perhaps the most basic, primary element-the photographer's eye-which is most crucial. In The Eyes of the City Richard Sandler not only showcases decades-worth of his strong eye for street photography, but also the eyes of his subjects as he catches them looking into his camera at just the right moment. From 1977 to September 11th 2001, Richard regularly walked through Boston and New York City, encountering all that the streets had to offer, and the results are presented here, many for the first time. Sandler credits his fascination with street life to his years in New York as a teenager in the 1960s. Young Sandler, a frequent truant, spent much of his time in a very different Times Square than we know today. His quests were to buy illegal fireworks and visit the arcades and side shows, particularly Hubert's Flea Circus on 42nd Street. Manhattan was was a cyclone of faces- some at play, many clearly suffering. All eyes, ears, and heart, Sandler was sensitive to it all as a kid peering into this adult world. Such early impressions would come to play a significant role in his later street photography. Living in Boston in 1977, and after two careers involved in helping others, as a natural foods chef and acupuncturist, Sandler realized an overwhelming desire to do something for himself, alone. As if on cue, a late 1940s Leica appeared in his life and he hit the Boston streets in an experimental mood. He shot in Boston for three productive years and then moved back home to photograph an edgy, nervous, angry, dangerous New York City. In the 1980s crime and crack were on the rise and their effects were devastating the city. Graffiti exploded onto surfaces everywhere and the Times Square, East Village, and Harlem streets were riddled with drugs, while in midtown the rich wore furs in vast numbers and ogreed was good.o In the 1990s the city experienced drastic changes to lure in corporate interests and tourists and the results were directly felt on the streets as rents were raised and several neighborhoods were sanitized, making them ghosts of what, to many, made them formerly exciting. Throughout these turbulent and triumphant years Sandler paced the streets with all his knowledge of what the city was, ever on the lookout for what his eye connected to as it transformed and changed the lives of everyone who lived in it. For better and for worse, one was simply oon the streeto in public space, bathing in the comforts, or terrors, of the human sea and Sandler's work is the marbled evidence of this beauty mixing with decay as only his eyes could capture it."
