In the early 1970s, I joined Photo magazine, right when we were discovering the major American color photographers like Pete Turner, Hiro, Jay Maisel, Ernst Haas and Art Kane... Art is a particularly fascinating case. His imagination is astonishing. Each image could be an icon of that period of American history. Then dark years followed, and he committed suicide on February 25th, 1995. Kane's son and daughter-in-law, Jonathan and Holly, have fought 20 years for this book to exist. Take a long, hard look: it's marvelous. And did you see the list of contributors! We should be thankful for everyone who made this book possible.
