First edition of this retrospective of Epstein's photography from 1973 to 2006: "The magic I felt when I made pictures as a young man was founded on surprise. And gratefully, the element of surprise is one thing in this world no person or institution has managed to squelch." This survey contains selections from Epstein's five major projects: "Common Practice/Recreation," "Vietnam," "The City," "Family Business," and "American Power." With an afterword by Eliot Weinberger, and a DVD of Epstein's film "Dad." A fine copy, signed and dated by Epstein on the title page: "NYC 12.06."
