by Sloane, Hal
Palm Springs CA: Hall/Sloane Publishing. Fine in Near Fine dj. (c.2006). First Edition. Hardcover. 0-9638683-3-0 . [nice copy, presents as-new, with just a touch of edge- and surface-wear to the jacket]. (B&W and color photographs) SIGNED by the author/photographer on the title page. "An eclectic personal chronicle of people, places and events of the last half of the 20th Century." Sloane's career as a photo-journalist and musical event producer stretched over four decades, and in addition to a bunch of celebrity photography he also covered such historic events as the neo-Nazi march in Skokie, Illinois, in 1978, and the restul of Ethiopian Jews from refugee camps in Sudan in 1985. It's a bit of a stretch, though, to claim (as does the jacket blurb) that "his eclectic body of work echos such photographic icons as Annie Liebowitz [sic] and Cartier-Brisson [sic]." (And seriously: if you're going to invoke such distinguished names as a kind of left-handed compliment to yourself, it really is a good idea to at least spell their names correctly.) Signed by Author . (Inventory #: 22406)
