Inhaltsangabe: This beautiful and striking monograph, the first major publication of Horace Bristol's work, pays homage to his genius with over 100 exquisitely reproduced duotone images. In the tradition of the great populists Alfred Eisenstadt and Dorothea Lange, Horace Bristol used his camera to record human, intimate moments: from poignant images of migrant farm workers during the Depression (his photographs inspired Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath) to compelling portraits of post-war Japan and Southeast Asia. An early staff photographer for Life magazine, Bristol was wildly prolific in the '30s and '40s, and tireless in his pursuit of the revelatory moment. With a humility, precision, and formal composition that is as striking today as it was innovative in its own time, Horace Bristol's pioneering artistry assures his importance among the finest documentary photographers of our era.
Rezension: This collection will do much to resurrect the reputation of the California native who became one of Life magazine's first staff photographers, only to burn much of his work after being devastated by personal tragedy in 1956. Bristol languished in obscurity for nearly three decades before a quirk of fate prompted him to reclaim his legacy. Among the images salvaged for posterity here are pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge under construction, Depression era street scenes, farm laborers, assignments for Edward Steichen's special World War II photographic unit, and views of a bombed-out Tokyo.

Summary: -- Star Tribune , December 1996 Horace Bristol: An American View brings to light the work of an almost-forgotten master. Bristol was part of a 1930s San Francisco circle that included Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and Dorothea Lange, and worked at Life as one of its first staff photographers with Margret Bourke-White and Alfred Eisenstadt. He also was one of five photographers under the direction of Edward Steichen who documented World War II for the Navy. After returning to Japan to live after the war, Bristol, along with David Douglas Duncan, pioneered the move from German lenses to Nikon. Bristol's work almost was lost, however, when devastated by his wife's death from an overdose of sleeping pills in 1956, he burned all the negatives and photgraphs he had at his Japanese home and ended his career. Remnants of his work that remained were locked away in a trunk for almost 30 years. This monograph, 120 superb duotone images compiled by Debra Heimerdinger and Ken Conner represents the first major publication of Bristol's work covering all stages of his career. Especially notable are photographs Bristol took in California in the 1930s with John Steinbeck while the author was researching The Grapes of Wrath, and of servicemen during the war in the South Pacific.
