DETROIT AFTER DARK. Nancy Barr. Detroit Institute of Arts, 2016. Distributed by Yale University Press, New Haven. 112 pp. with 100 ills. (80 col.). 24 x 28 cm. ISBN 9780300218428 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: This book is the first to explore photographic representations of Detroit during the hours from dusk until dawn, featuring work by artists including Robert Frank, Leni Sinclair, Steve Shaw, Russ Marshall, and Dave Jordano, among others. The city's streets, architecture, vast industrial complexes, night clubs, and unique subcultures are captured here in otherworldly visions of the nighttime urban landscape from the 1950s to the present day. These images offer a unique interpretation of Detroit, its industry, culture, and turbulent history through the second half of the 20th century and into the 21st. This book also provides context for the work by addressing historically significant artists who have contributed to the genre, including Ilse Bing, Brassai, Andre Kertesz, Berenice Abbott, and others.
