Dorchester Days. Photographs by Eugene Richards. Postscript by Dorothea Lynch. Many Voices Press, Wollaston, MA, 1978. Unpaged. Thin quarto. Stiff illustrated wrappers. Duotone reproductions.
This now-classic title chronicles life in Richards' hometown of Dorchester, Massachusetts. Illuminating a broad range of topics from racial tensions, to poverty and drug abuse, the work itself was all made within several city blocks. The consummate reportage photographer, this work formed the basis for Richards' acceptance into the Magnum agency. "Deeply personal without being sanctimonious, [if Richards] is telling his own story, he never forgets to tell the stories of those he is photographing."--Parr & Badger
