John T. Hill - Random Access


Regular price $40.00

This volume compiles over seven decades of work by American photographer John T. Hill (born 1934), showing the remarkable scope and empathy of his vision. From a street scene in São Paulo in 1958 to the interior of a Queens taxi in 1970, from John F. Kennedy at the podium of a 1960 rally to punks in Trafalgar Square, from Walker Evans’ home to recent landscapes and still lifes, his work is democratic, curious, all-embracing. Hill celebrates the contradictions and imperfections of his subjects, engages but never sentimentalizes and is careful not to impose a singular interpretation on the viewer. Here is none of the self-congratulation of "Look at what only I can see," but, rather, an open invitation for the viewer of "This is what you are also capable of seeing."
