Publisher's description: Only the Good Ones explores the ongoing influence of the snapshot on photographers working throughout the twentieth century and beyond, with particular focus on the last 25 years. It narrates the history of the snapshot aesthetic as a story of provocative, diaristic intimacy and the poetry of everyday life--an aesthetic that periodically revitalizes artistic practice with the primitive force of an unpremeditated gesture. Included are works by Nobuyoshi Araki, Tim Barber, Richard Billingham, Mike Brodie, William Christenberry, Larry Clark, Barbara Crane, Bill Dane, Corinne Day, William Eggleston, JH Engstrom, Walker Evans, Lee Friedlander, Luigi Ghirri, Nan Goldin, Jacob Holdt, Jerry Hsu, William Klein, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Ari Marcopoulos, Ryan McGinley, Joel Meyerowitz, Slava Mogutin, Daido Moriyama, Mark Morrisroe, Ed Panar, Tod Papageorge, Walter Pfeiffer, Jack Pierson, Stephen Shore, Dash Snow, Joel Sternfeld, Gus Van Sant, Jurgen Teller, Andy Warhol, Henry Wessel and Garry Winogrand, among others.
