Format: Hardcover
I've frequently seen two books by Sally Euclaire, this one and her American Independents: Eighteen Color Photographers mentioned in several bibliographies of books dealing with photography over the last few decades. Some of the eighteen photographers included are now really well known but this short portfolio style of presentation could possibly help you rediscover a creative talent that has been forgotten.

Interestingly plenty of the photos are exteriors and I wonder how many of the eighteen were influenced by the New Topographics show in Rochester NY, in 1975. Eauclaire says in the introduction that all the projects here were started after 1979 (the book was published in 1984) and buildings in the landscape do feature in many shots.

The book's format is a straightforward one photo a page, printed with a 200 screen on a semi-gloss art paper with the 164 images all having dated captions. Eauclaire writes between four and six pages about the photographers before several pages of their portfolio. She says that this format, also repeated in her `American Independents' is useful because it gives the reader a more rounded appreciation of the creative output of the eighteen rather than just one or two shots.

To put the work of some of these photographers in perspective Kevin Moore's Starburst: Color Photography in America 1970-1980 looks backward to eighteen who produced color work, seven are common to both books.

Format: Paperback
The biographies of the photographers presented in this book are interesting and well written. They give the reader a peek inside the photographer's heads and reveal what was really going on while the work was being created. The portfolios are interesting and the photographs well done. Some of the images are striking. I found it useful to view the work presented as "portfolios". This book is a good teaching tool if you are or want to put your own portfolios together. The heavy paper and size of the book make it a little too large for a paperback, though, and I don't quite trust the binding.

At the time, this book must've been a lot more interesting. I bought this book just out of curiosity. Two decades does make a difference in how you look at color photography.
