Synopsis : This is the first anthology dedicated to one of the greatest American photographers of the twentieth century, Dennis Stock. A Magnum photographer, Stock was a photojournalist particularly renowned for his photographs of James Dean and of jazz musicians in the 1950s. Complete access to Stock's archive was granted for this book and several of these images are never-before-seen. This coffee table tome is a stunning tribute to his immense talent. Michael Pritchard is Director-General of The Royal Photographic Society.

Critique: 'This classic photo essay on California captures the contrasts of the state and its people, from the mountains of the Sierras to the sands of the coast, from the people on a spiritual quest to those doing research at the cutting-edge of technology, all during time of intense political, cultural and social exploration in America's history.' --Independent on Sunday

'Includes some of the late snapper's most striking images, among them his 1955 shot of a then unknown Dean walking through Times Square in New York.... We have his amazing photographs as evidence to remind us of the range of emotion and experience captured so poetically by his photographers' eye and sensitivity. He really was one of a kind.' --Daily Mail

'Another hip coffee table volume [from RAP]... That title is no accident... it contains some of the coolest imagery and people of the mid-20th century.' --Restro To Go

'Dennis Stock's best images of American life in the time of Woodstock, from stage invasions to Planet of the Apes fanatics, Louis Armstrong gearing up for a gig and an unknown James Dean in Times Square.' --The Guardian

'The Magnum photographer documented just as poetically subjects from newly arriving immigrants to the jazz greats and, here, not only the elegance of the building, flooded with light from its glass canopy, but also the glorious contrast between guests dressed up to the nines and the informality of his fellow snappers.' -- The Independent on Sunday
