Format: Hardcover
Sally Eauclaire, in her two books, the 1984: New Color New Work: 18 Photographic Essays and the 1987: American Independents: Eighteen Color Photographers covered many of the artists in 'Starburst' and a common element in the three books is that they all consider eighteen photographers, eight are in all three. Kevin Moore's book is very comprehensive with 301 photos in color and he writes a detailed twenty-nine page historical essay outlining the changes from a slow color start in the early seventies to a full blown acceptance by the start of the eighties. William Eggleston could probably be considered the photographer to really get things going with his 1976 MoMA exhibition and as Moore says, few people, at the time, "got it". Wasn't color just for family snaps, magazine covers and the ads inside? Art photography was black and white, end of story. Looking at Eggleston's 1973 photo of the red ceiling, light bulb and wires perhaps it was understandable that folks didn't get it.

After Moore's essay and another twelve pages with contributions by Leo Rubinfien and James Crump each of the eighteen gets a portfolio of their work, all of it interesting and nicely, rather typical of each persons output.

Format: Hardcover
I think this was a thorough and important review of a pivotal time in photography. The medium was stuck in the "black and white" ghetto until Shore, Eggleston and others forged this new path.

There are good essays and lots of fun, colorful, and provocative photos. It is fun to browse and adds to our knowledge of how photography tot to today.

I concur 100% with Robin Benson's review. Nothing to add to it really, I can only second his every point. I just wish Sally Eauclaire had done another book on the subject (i.e. I'd have much preferred her to have done this one)
