Bystander.
A History of Street Photography.


Text by Colin Westerbeck and Joel Meyerowitz.
Bulfinch Press, Boston, 1994. 432 pp., 261 duotone, 8 color illustrations, 9x11".

Out of the attempt to document everyday life grows the genre of street photography. But few things are as difficult to capture as the "everyday". Fifteen years in the making, Bystander explores the development and history of the genre through the medium's masters--Strand, Atget, Stieglitz, Cartier-Bresson, Lartigue, Kertész, Walker Evans, Brassaï, Diane Arbus, Robert Frank, Helen Levitt, Garry Winogrand, Lee Friedlander, and many others--and astutely comments on the influence this genre has had on both craft and creativity for photographers. Illustrated with the work of more than eighty photographers, Bystander poignantly expresses the power of photography to capture moments.
