Reaktion Books in London has been publishing this marvellous “exposures” series for a while now, exploring the history of photography through its relationships with a range of cultural and geographic themes.
Photographer Elliott Erwitt has a keen eye for the “decisive moment”, not to mention an almost Jacques Tatiesque sense of everyday life’s absurdities. This marvellous collection features photos that disrupt the solitary moment of the single image by capturing the moments after as well. Some are sad, some enigmatic, and some simply hilarious; as usual with this photographer, dogs get some of the best moments!
Baron Wolman was the first photographer to work on Rolling Stone magazine from its inception in 1967, and his now iconic images of some of the greatest figures in rock music history retain their potency thanks in part to his insistence on capturing his subjects in full-flight, away from studio set-ups, doing what they all did best.
