Overview

A news media photographer for over forty years, Arthur Pollock creates images that incorporate great depth and allure with a photojournalistic viewpoint. Reminiscent of the gritty, yet artistic style popularized by Weegee in the forties, the photographs in the book bring to light the daily travails that build the foundation of a city. Limited edition of 500. "Many news photographers travel in packs at events and often their photos reflect a commonness of vision that just doesn't stand the test of time. They are competent, but their photographs are also predictable. Just think back to your own hometown paper from the days when the black printing ink might have rubbed off on your hands. Are their any photographs that stick in your mind? Not many. This seems to be the norm for most daily news photos, unless it happens to be a photo made by one Arthur Pollock... Pollock holds your eye and your spirit! Throw in his crops, the "hand of God" darkroom work and sometimes it's even a classic." - Ken Light , "While he may echo the understatement of a news scribe, Pollock's work clearly pays special homage to the artistry of those iconic shutter artists, Diane Arbus and the legendary New York street lensman of the '30's and '40's Weegee. Indeed, every picture does tell a story. And in this unique collection, there are hundreds of stories... wonderfully told." - Peter Gelzinis, Arthur Pollock is the recipient of the World Press Award as well as the National Press Photographers Association Picture of the Year and now spends his days as Assistant Photo Editor for the Boston Herald.
