photog friday: constantine manos

If you guessed Constantine Manos for yesterday's trivia question, you were right!

Constantine Manos. He is best known for his photography book American Color, a collection of color photographs capturing the eccentricities of American life. The thing I love a about these particular photos besides the obvious - color - is the composition and the found in between moments. I can imagine the photographer walking by, snapping the photo, and walking away, the subject never aware that their image remains on Kodachrome celluloid.

Here is a link to some unpublished photos from the American Color collection and a video of the photographer discussing his book.
