IRWIN KLEIN & THE NEW SETTLERS: PHOTOGRAPHS OF COUNTERCULTURE IN NEW MEXICO. Ed. by Benjamin Klein. Bison Books, University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln, 2016. 188 pp. with 86 ills. 27 x 30 cm. LC 2015-36770 ISBN 9780803285101 In English.
Publisher's description: Dropouts, renegades, utopians. Children of the urban middle class and old beatniks living alone, as couples, in families, or as groups in the small Nuevomexicano towns. When photographer Irwin Klein began visiting northern New Mexico in the mid-1960s, he found these self-proclaimed New Settlers -- and many others -- in the back country between Santa Fe and Taos. His black-and-white photographs captured the life of the counterculture's transition to a social movement. His documentation of these counterculture communities has become well known and sought after for both its sheer beauty and as a primary source about a largely undocumented group. By blending Klein's unpublished work with essays by modern scholars, Benjamin Klein (Irwin's nephew) creates an important contribution to the literature of the counterculture and especially the 1960s. Supporting essays emphasize the importance of a visual record for interpreting this lifestyle in the American Southwest. Irwin Klein and the New Settlers reinforces the photographer's reputation as an astute observer of back-to-the-land, modern-day Emersonians whose communes represented contemporaryWaldens.
