Editorial Reviews

Review

"The photographs in this book celebrate not only flesh and heat made visible, but also the eternal human comedy of desire... These photographs celebrate summer days, steamy Chicago nights, endless desires fulfilled and postponed. Photography has often been called mirror and window; it is also a prism reflecting the intersections between the photographer, subject, and viewer. Prisms are faceted; Barbara Crane creates diamonds of perception and feeling." -- Richard Gordon --Photo-Eye Magazine

"A touchingly intimate and esoteric approach to crowds, it's much more evocative of actually being there than the usual bird's-eye views." -- Diane Smyth --The British Journal of Photography

"she emerged [from Chicago's summer festivals] with a body of photography, presented now in this book, that reveals the intimate gestures and preserves the moments that otherwise would have been lost in the crowd." --Tokion Magazine --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

and so for 4 years barbara crane shot these summer public festivals in chicago.
she has captured details of people's gestures and clothings. the angles are always very unusual and the photographs are amanzigly alive.

this book is a must have for people who like contemporary photography!

I liked the style, but Id seen enough by the end. Could have been half the length and I would not have minded.
