Living Poor in America.


Photography by Eugene Richards.
Consumer Reports Books, New York, 1987. 224 pp., 150 black-and-white photographs, 9¼x11½".

With this exploration of the realities of contemporary American poverty, Magnum photographer Eugene Richards has produced a photo-essay in the tradition of the finest of the classic photo-documentaries of the thirties through the sixties. "In 150 unforgettable photographs Richards captures the hopelessness of urban youth, the struggle of midwestern farmers, the squalor of day-to-day existence for Mexican-American immigrants living in Texas border towns. The men and women of Shantytown on New York City's Lower East Side, a 15-year-old Chicago girl with two children, a Korean War vet and ex-Green Beret living in a Boston shelter--these people tell their stories in 14 essays culled from more than one hundred hours of interviews, accompanied by Richards' exceptional portraits."--the publisher.
