THIS LOTS CONSISTS OF 2 BOOKS BY BILL OWENS: Working (I Do It For The Money), 1977 (shown) and Our Kind of People: American Groups and Rituals, 1975

Working (I Do It For The Money). Photographs by Bill Owens. Simon and Schuster, New York, 1977. Unpaged. First edition. Squarish quarto. Photo-illustrated library protected dust jacket. Numerous black-and-white reproductions. Includes a publishers insert describing the book along with a 8 x 6 1/2" black-and-white print of one of the book's images. "Rouses pity, contempt, laughter and self-recognition."--Los Angeles Times "Owens uses his camera with cutting sympathy. His pictures are gentle, instructive and disturbing without being obvious or over didactic"--Newsweek "His pictures and deadpan comments are like a dream within the American dream"--Time Dust jacket has one small (covered) edge chip; some sun striking to spine and mild shelf wear; other wise Fine. Our Kind of People: American Groups and Rituals. Photographs by Bill Owens. Straight Arrow Books, San Francisco, 1975. Unpaged. First edition. Square quarto. Photo-illustrated wrappers. Numerous black-and-white illustrations. "Though conspicuously absent from public collections, Bill Owens' photo-chronicles of middle America belong alongside those of the better known "social landscape" photographers of the '60s and '70s: Diane Arbus, Bruce Davidson, Lee Friedlander, and Gary Winogrand. Why Owens has slipped through the net is hard to tell...[his work] provide both a tender and sociologically astute portrait of Middle America in the late '60s and early '70s."--Artforum Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket that is edge worn and a bit soiled on its rear; one inch repaired tear to rear with a three inch section of tape residue at that spot.
