Kenneth Graves, The Home Front

In this enchanting photobook blending humour, sorrow and eccentricity, the late American photographer Kenneth Graves (b. 1942; d. 2016) documents daily life in the San Francisco Bay Area of the 60s and 70s. Against a backdrop of war, protest and the flower power movement, Graves astute eye for idiosyncratic detail captures happy accidents and improbable episodes among soldiers, fair-goers, beatniks, dog-walkers, solitary ball dancers and poodles alike.
