edited by Judith Keller and Anne Lacoste; with essays by Kenneth A. Breisch,
Bruce Wagner and Colin Westerbeck. These photographs are great, so realistic and
familiar.  Simple and complex at the same time.  I’m sorry I missed this exhibition
that was at the Getty, but at least we have this great catalog!
