  • "TIMES SQUARE. 45 YEARS OF PHOTOGRAPHY" par Lou STOUMEN. Editions Aperture, New York. 1985. in-8 dos droit, couverture souple cartonnée photo. 160 pages. Texte en anglais illustré de reproductions photographiques noir & blanc, pleine page pour la plupart, certaines en double page. "I've been photographing Times Square since 1939, almost half a century. The work began as a Pennsylvania country boy's love letter to his adopted city. Over the decades it grew into an obsession. Lou Stoumen's TIMES SQUARE is a photographic time machine, evoking the memories, dreams and realities of generations of Americans. One man's camera eye recorded all these years of seeing. He was self-assigned, without grant or commission, and worked alone. TIMES SQUARE unfolds in a cinematic counterpoint of photographs and "soundtrack" words. Stoumen calls this "a paper movie". He conjure up a pre-war era when : Men wore hats. Women wore skirts. Teenagers seemed to behave. Couples stayed married. Practically everybody in Times Square was white or middle class or snooty rich come to the theatah. Despite its nostalgia, humor and occasional lyricism, TIMES SQUARE is not a coffee-table album of dramatic buildings, famous faces and parks at sunset. It's about ordinary people surviving in the city. This photographer looks directly into New York's celebrated heart, Times Square, and shows us Change. He demonstrates how photographs, especially after they've aged a bit, can project a very spooky time sense..." Ref LPB0091
