A fascinating book by American photojournalist Leonard Freed and a complex "inside" study of the NYPD, the New York police department. Executed in the 1970s for the London Sunday Times and published in the 1980s, Freed had to accompany many police officers in their daily lives.
A photographic testimony as moving as it is singular of the United States of the 1970s. Started by Jacob Holdt during a long road-trip in the country, it highlights the social, racial disparities and the complexity of the American society of his time.
In perhaps his most accessible artist's book to date (included is an interview with the artist by renowned cult photographer and filmmaker Larry Clark), Prince surveys his life's work, and packs it all into a populist vehicle typifying the steam and virility of late 20th-century American culture-a Prince specialty.
