Softcover in dust jacket. 504 photographs including the two cover images and the printed front and end papers.

Ohara’s impressive work is a collection of 504 black and white close-up portraits. Shot in the mid 1960s on the streets of New York. The portraits are a fair representation of New York’s diverse population, being a mix of people of various genders, age and ethnicity. Each person looks more or less directly into the camera. What unifies all images are the blank expressions of Ohara’s subjects. All portraits are close-ups and are printed in full bleed. Ironically this leads to a sort of optical illusion of unification, and a superficial flick through the book seems to make the faces all appear as one. (achtung.photography)
