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.
