The Week in Review

 

Thanksgiving and Black Friday came and went, without much incident. Behind us now, so it seems, we greet the beginning of the holiday season. Welcome to the .020th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

 

Maciej Dakowicz

Bystander: A History of Street Photography

The authors explore and discuss the development of one of the most interesting and dynamic of photographic genres.

Now fully revised and out on Laurence King Publishing.

Wojciech Zamecznik

Photographisme. Klein, Ifert, Zamecznik

Through January 29, 2018 / Centre Pompidou.
