About the Author 
  
Colin Westerbeck is curator of photography at the Art Institute of Chicago, and editor of Irving Penn: A Career in Photography.  
  
 
  
Joel Meyerowitz is best known for his large-format color work published in Bay/Sky and Cape Light, but he began his photographic career in the 1960s as a street photographer. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
This landmark book, a monumental chronicle of the photographic genre created from the chaotic energy of everyday street life, grew out of a fifteen-year collaboration between an esteemed curator and a distinguished photographer. The work of such celebrated masters as Atget, Stieglitz, Cartier-Bresson, Brassaï, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, and Garry Winogrand are presented here, along with extraordinary photographs by complete unknowns. Colin Westerbeck's enlightening text illuminates each of these images, and a new illustrated afterword by Westerbeck, only available in this paperback edition, examines contemporary street photography. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
