Rate this:
Bernard Plossu is best known for his work in black and white, often capturing a bohemian world of free-spirited adventure. Plossu has also shot in color throughout his career. This book showcases 88 bold and cinematic color photographs, many of which are previously unpublished, dating from the 1970s and early 1980s, when Plossu was resident in the US. Strikingly rendered using the Fresson carbon printing process, these images depict an unmistakably American landscape of motels and rodeos, deserts and highways; a realm that is both rugged and dreamlike, haunted by the mythic imagery of the Old West. They combine to form a memorable and atmospheric collection of work by a supremely talented photographer.
