Chiefly pictorial. This edition includes a new introductory essay. Publisher's description: Detroit 1968 was first published in 1972 under the title New American People, and was the subjectof Enrico Natali's 1969 solo exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago. In his introduction to the 1972 edition, Hugh Edwards, former Curator of Photography at the Art Institute of Chicago, wrote: "All the photographs in the present collection were taken in 1967-1970 in Detroit, which in no way restricts their presentation as a brief of how Americans look and live today. These scenes and incidents might have occurred anywhere in the United States in this time when regional characteristics are disappearing ... this is a view of a situation and condition, not a localization." Forty years later, we can now also appreciate the specificity of Natali's subject, as this body of work presents an insightful exploration of Detroit when it was on the cusp of losing half of its inhabitants, along with its status as America's industrial capital. We witness Detroit just before the auto industry began its decade-long decline, as race riots and the Vietnam War raged on...
