Kunstboeken hebben meestal als nadeel dat de kwaliteit van de tekst aanmerkelijk minder is dan de kwaliteit van de afbeeldingen. Zo niet in "Bystander", een goed geschreven geschiedenis van de straatfotografie. Omdat niet alles perfect kan zijn vallen hier juist de afbeeldingen weer een beetje tegen. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0821227262, Paperback)

This work is a chronicle of the photographic genre created from the chaotic energy of everyday street life. It grew out of a 15-year collaboration between an esteemed curator and a distinguished photographer. The work of such celebrated masters as Arget, Stieglitz, Cartier-bresson, Brassai, Walker Evans, Robert Frank and Garry Winogrand is presented here, along with extraordinary photos by complete unknowns. Colin Westerbeck's text illuminates each image and he has also contributed a new illustrated afterword for this paperback edition, which examines contemporary street photography.
