The visual diary of a flaneur.
On my bookshelf, sandwiched tight between " the concerned photographer" and " Alfred Stieglitz: Photographer" sits the sun bleached spine of a book I have dipped into periodically for nearly 40 years. Not regularly, sometimes only annually, but always with pleasure.
The book is a 1974 Aperture publication called " the SNAPSHOT" edited by Jonathan Green. The price sticker is still there. £3.95 from a time when even that was a stretch. But excellent value when spread over 40 years. Between its limp covers lie Tod Papageorge, Henry Wessel jnr, Emmet Gowin, Bill Zulpo Dane, Lee Friedlander, Joel Meyerowitz et al, all early-career stars-in-the-making.
