Overview

Award-winning photographer Harry Benson came to America in 1964 with the Beatles and knew he never wanted to leave. Working for the most popular magazines in the country-Life, People, The New Yorker, Van authority Fair-he has photographed everyone and everything, from the famous to the infamous, from the sublime to the absurd, from Bob Guccione styling a model to Truman Capote dancing with transvestites. Whether they are images of Steven Spielberg, Richard Nixon, or Andy Warhol, or shots of music concerts, political rallies, or sports events, the pictures Benson has gathered in this book capture the essence of this country's pop culture over the last four decades.

No story is too small and no personality too big for the finest photographic chronicler of America's constantly changing and vastly entertaining public spectacle-a realm where success and achievement only sometimes go hand-in-hand. More irreverent than his previous books, Harry Benson's America shows a side of the photographer's work that hasn't been seen before, shedding new light on our nation in turn.

Author Bio: Harry Benson has won numerous awards for his photojournalism, and his work has been the subject of many exhibitions. He worked for Life for almost 30 years, as well as for Vanity Fair, Newsweek, The New Yorker, and People. Abrams' Harry Benson: 50 Years in Pictures and Once there was a way . . . Photographs of the Beatles are among his many published books. He lives in New York City with his wife, Gigi.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The extraordinarily varied accomplishments of Scottish photographer Harry Benson are often whittled down to his famous documentation of the Beatles's 1964 American tour and his dozens of People Weekly covers. To reduce his four-decade career in such a way is unjust; since he first picked up a camera as a young boy in postwar Glasgow, Benson has had an uncanny knack for not only being in the right place at the right time but also eloquently recording his surroundings, documenting many of modern history's major political and social events. This compelling book thoroughly demonstrates his rare quality, beginning with the endpaper still life of dozens of hotel keys that the peripatetic photojournalist has kept throughout the years. This image, a banal view laden with implications, is the perfect opener. Nearly everything else a photography lover or 20th-century culture vulture would want is here as well: celebrity portraits (with an emphasis on the Kennedys and their diaspora), high and low points in the Civil Rights Movement, and more recent images of war and violence-including the dust cloud that rose over Manhattan on 9/11. In July, American Photo magazine will bestow on Benson the American Photo Achievement in Photography Award. An engrossing and entertaining overview of an artist deserving greater renown, this book is highly recommended.-Douglas F. Smith, Oakland P.L., CA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
