50 Hours. Photographs by Eugene Richards. Text by Dorothea Lynch. Many Voices Press, New York, 1983. First Edition. Unpaged, numerous black-and-white illustrations.
During a period of 50 hours, Richards alternately photographed the occupation of the Seabrook, New Hampshire nuclear power plant and the natural birth of the child of his best friend Dorothea Lynch. The juxtaposition gains power as the protesters are confronted with tear gas and violence while at home the pain of childbirth intensifies. Lynch's deeply personal text is woven through these powerful pictures.
