The Book of Beth.

Photographs by Kent Klich. Texts by Cornell Capa and Bengt Börjeson.
Aperture, New York, 1989. 96 pp., 56 b&w duotone illustrations,, 8¼x11½".

Klich, a licensed psychologist, portrays the troubled life of Beth, a prostitute and drug addict. Combining intimate and personal photographs with police and hospital records, and Beth's notes, he searches for an adequate explanation for Beth's situation. "Klich relentlessly exposes the frail humanity of one cast out by a system that does not care to know her story. Compassionate and impassioned, The Book of Beth is contemporary history which views modern society through the prism of a young woman's life."--the publisher.
