Von Robin Benson am 12. Februar 2011
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Page could be considered the photographer who slipped through the public gaze but look at the bibliography at the back of this book and there are plenty of examples of Page's work from the forties to mid-sixties in a variety of magazines and books. As well as helping Steichen organise the Family of Man show he had nine photos included, the same as Dorothea Lange. Only Wayne Miller, with twelve and Henri Cartier-Bresson, with ten, had more.

Perhaps the reason for Page's low profile, as Keith Davis explains in his excellent essay, is that Page had two photographic careers. The first, revealed in the seventy-two plates in the book, was his personal, creative look at New York thanks to a Guggenheim Fellowship and after 1950, he concentrated on commercial assignments.

Davis also mentions that Page is a link between two eras of American photography: the FSA and Photo League of the thirties and forties and from the fifties the expressionistic young street photographers centered in New York. Certainly some of the book's photos give me that impression. There are several that would blend right into a selection from Don Donaghy, Louis Faurer, Helen Levitt or Lisette Model.

Though the book's sub-title is New York 1949-1950, only four are from 1950. Not that it matters because none of them is really date related but they all capture in a wonderful, vibrant way street life back then. Flick through the pages and be amazed at the ebb and flow of pedestrians that Page managed to capture. So many of his shots just grab you and pull you into the frame.

Great photos deserve a great book and this one cannot be faulted. Three hundred screen tritones beautifully printed by Meridian of Rhode Island from separations that only Thomas Palmer knows how to do properly. Meridian and Palmer's name keep popping up on the best American photo books year after year.

The photography of Homer Page, with this lovely book, has finally arrived.

Knocked Me Over!!! 6. Oktober 2009
Von Robert Byrd - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I was visiting Strand Bookstore in New York several weeks ago and headed straight for the photography section as I typically do. I am an avid collector of photography monographs and pride myself on a pretty extensive knowledge of the medium and its artists. Imagine my surprise when I came across this book of Homer Page photographs. It nearly knocked me over!! I was completely unaware of the work of this phenomenal artist. I quickly set out to change that by purchasing this book and searching the internet for anything I could find on Page. I urge you to buy this book! I don't understand why the photography world has chosen to ignore this great talent, but hopefully the release of this book will reveal the error and stupidity of such an oversight.

I have loved this man's work for more than half a century! 18. Oktober 2009
Von Kenneth E. Stein - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have loved Homer Page's work since the mid-fifties when my brother's girlfriend gave our family a paperback copy of The Family of Man, which is still in print. Although the photographers are all but hidden in the fine print accompanying the photos, invariably, every time I saw a photo in that book that I really liked, it turned out to be by Homer Page. I am so glad to know of this collection because until now, those few photos in that book were all I knew of the man or his work. For more on the history of this fine photographer and of this publication, see [...] and search Homer Page. Was their exhibit.
Based on the exhibition; haven't yet seen this catalog. 10. Juni 2009
Von P.S. Woods - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I was taken completely by surprise when I walked into the photography ghetto of the Nelson-Atkins complex in Kansas City a few weeks ago. I didn't know what was showing and didn't have any expectations. Imagine my surprise to discover the work of a photographer I hadn't heard of - from half a century ago - work that was at once technically impressive and deeply moving.

Homer Page seems to me to excel his contemporaries. He combines wit, humanity, compositional genius, and an uncanny sense of the city in a way that draws no obvious 1:1 comparisons. The best I could come up with is a cross between Walker Evans and William Klein.

I can't wait to get the book.
