The photographs and visual documentaries of Louis Stettner have always attracted critical attention. Pupil and lifelong friend of Brassai, Stettner has continually sought to capture in his glimpses of daily life a profound connection to reality while casting light on human expression in all its facets. Bringing together for the first time photographs taken in Paris and New York from the 1950s to the present, this magnificent book is both a catalogue of his work and a monument to his art. Punctuated by essays penned by the photographer himself, Wisdom cries out in the streets traces the many phases of Stettner's career in frank and lively prose. Beautifully reproduced photographs reveal images worthy of close examination; for it is also in the detail of his work that he is so highly regarded. A master at framing his subjects, this volume shows Stettner's fastidiousness in framing seemingly simple still-lifes. Destined to become a standard reference for Louis Stettner's photographs, this book celebrates the art of one of America's great photographers. 288 illustrations "My way of life, my very being is based on images capable of engraving themselves indelibly in our inner soul's eye."
