In this brilliant new work, Magnum photographer Constantine Manos continues his exploration, seen in "American Color", 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 and crowded boardwalks and at small-town carnivals, Manos has captured the varied spectrum of contemporary American life in all its offbeat and charming strangeness. These moments are elusive and varied, asking questions without giving ready answers. Ordinary people drift between technicolour landscapes and dark shadows, tumultuous city streets and stark ocean horizons. Manos' lens unleashes a cacophony of brilliant colours often overlooked in day-to-day observation. This title includes an introductory essay by Alison Nordstrom, curator of photographs at the George Eastman House.
