Cruising nighttime byways for an adrenaline fix, Scot Sothern first patronized the marketplace of curbside prostitution surfing the prurient whims of a young man. He dove to the murky depths of sexual obsession and resurfaced five years later, shell-­shocked and without excuse. While there, trusty Nikon in hand, Scot, a second-­generation photographer, made full-­frontal X-­rated exposures, black and white, filled with pathos and an uncanny realism. The pictures captured the plight of the disenfranchised in America, those forgotten and drug-­addicted. Now he is ready to tell the story behind the photographs, the confessions of a befuddled baby-­boomer maintaining a slippery connection to propriety while side-­tripping into noirish infatuations with those low in life. recounts Sothern’s past as a troubled kid in the 1960s who visited two-­dollar whorehouses and as an adult in the 1980s is still at it. A photographer who either can’t get a break or blows it when one comes his way, Scot . . .

The story of rock lives in Lynn Goldsmith's photographs. After coming of age in the Midwest in the tumultuous 1960s, she crashed the music scene in New York and emerged as one of its leading image-­makers. She chronicled Bruce Springsteen's passage to glory, the Rolling Stones' legendary stadium tours, Michael Jackson's staggering ascent, U2's arrival in New York, and the brooding force of Bob Marley. Culture heroes like Bob Dylan and Patti Smith became frequent subjects for her lens. The range of her work is staggering. In Rock and Roll Stories, she shares the best of this work. Her commentary takes the reader into the studio, the tour bus, the concert hall, and the streets where the pictures were made, offering revealing perspectives on her subjects and herself. A greatly expanded and newly designed edition of her very successful book PhotoDiary (1995), this volume captures the story of a generation's loyalty to rock and roll.

En el mundo contemporáneo las apariencias han sustituido a la realidad. No obstante, la fotografía, una tecnología históricamente al servicio de la verdad, sigue ejerciendo una función de mecanismo ortopédico de la conciencia moderna: la cámara no miente, toda fotografía es una evidencia. A partir de vivencias personales, el autor crítica esta creencia y reflexiona sobre aspectos fundamentales de la creación y de la cultura actual. Además de un nuevo diseño, cubierta y encuadernación, esta nueva edición incluye un prefacio del autor, escrito en abril de 2011, en el que explica el origen y gestación de El beso de Judas así como su recorrido hasta hoy.

In the early 1960s, Richard Avedon was commissioned by to create, a column that consisted of a series of nine photographic essays. The subject of the first essay was John F. Kennedy and his young family, who sat for formal black-­and-­white portraits just three weeks prior to Kennedy's presidential inauguration. Six images appeared in the magazine's February 1961 issue. That same day, Avedon created more informal color portraits of Kennedy and his family at the Kennedy compound in Palm Beach. One of these images ran as the cover of magazine's February 28 issue, with photographs by Avedon inside. Just before the magazine hit the newsstands and was delivered to over 6.­5 million people, a set of photographs, comprised mostly of the images, was released by the White House and appeared in newspapers across the country. During his lifetime, Richard Avedon donated more than two hundred images to the Smithsonian Institution, including all of the photographs of the Kennedy family sitting . . .

One of the hottest days of summer 2008 was Saturday, August 16. The entire week had been sweltering so when the weekend arrived, thousands of families headed to the California coast to cool down from the oppressive 90F - 100F heat wave. Unfortunately, upon arriving at the beach it was discovered that there was an onshore flow of air. Meaning, the fog had rolled in off the Pacific Ocean and covered the beach. The fog had its desired cooling effect and then some. From 100F inland the temperature on the beach was a much cooler 60F - 70F with a mist of foggy water droplets. Maybe a little too perfect! Despite the cooler temperatures, families and their kids had fun at both Seacliff Beach located at State Park in Aptos and at Seal Rock located in Santa Cruz. Both located minutes away from each other in Northern California on the coast of the Pacific Ocean one hour south of San Francisco. After spending part of the afternoon at Seacliff Beach, it was then time to take a break and head . . .
