Constantine Manos: American Color 2, 2010 - Signed
The long-awaited continuation of the celebrated collection American Color.
In this brilliant new work, Magnum photographer Constantine Manos continues his exploration of the dynamic intersection between subject and time, the real and the surreal in American towns. From Santa Monica and New Orleans to Provincetown and New York City, on streets, beaches, crowded boardwalks, and at small-town carnivals, Manos has captured the varied spectrum of contemporary life in all its offbeat and charming strangeness. These moments are elusive and varied, asking questions without giving ready answers. Ordinary people drift between technicolor landscapes and dark shadows, tumultuous city streets and stark ocean horizons. Manos's lens is to unleash a cacophony of brilliant colors often overlooked in day-to-day observation. This volume includes an introductory essay by Alison Nordstrom, Curator of Photographs, George Eastman House.
Constantine Manos is author of A Greek Portfolio and American Color. His work is in the permanent collections of Museum of Fine and Arts, Boston and Museum of Modern Art, New York, among others. He lives in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
