By Charles K. Cowdery on July 31, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Bill Owens is a significant American cultural figure due to his photography alone, but he has done so much more than that. He was one of the pioneers of the U.S. microbrew movement, created one of the first brew pubs, started American Brewer and several other magazines, and in his 8th decade of life is spearheading the booming microdistillery industry.

Bill is also a nut, a force of nature, and fun to drink with, as you might imagine.

Except for the fact that he always has a camera with him, you wouldn't know Bill is a renowned fine art photographer. He doesn't talk about photography. He seldom talks about himself in any context. Bill almost exclusively talks about the next thing, whatever that might be.

Bill's photography is documentary. It's never contrived, although he often has mischief in mind when deciding where to point his lens. His subject is ordinary life in America from the sixties to now and, specifically, it is Bill's own life we're watching unfold, the places where he has found himself and the events he considered interesting enough to shoot.

Bill's most famous photography collection is Suburbia, but his most famous photographs, the ones you probably have seen, are the images from Altamont in 1968, which are included in this volume.

In addition to being a great sampler of Bill's oeuvre, this book includes a good amount of commentary, so you get a more complete picture of the guy himself.
