The Eyes of the Globe: Twenty-Five Years of Photography from the Boston Globe

Stan Grossfeld, Editor Globe Pequot Press $24.95 (253p) ISBN 978-0-87106-861-3
News photos from the past 25 years published in the Boston Globe are collected here by Pulitzer Prizewinning photographer Grossfeld. The black-and-white shots dramatically depict historical and human-interest stories: John F. Kennedy on the eve of his presidential election; the Beatles in concert; portraits of Martin Luther King Jr., Jane Fonda and Bob Dylan; as well as pictures of a lone Mexican basket weaver and a pensive anti-war protester. Action shots catch a streaker hurdling a bike rack, a blur of runners at the start of the Boston Marathon, police officers apprehending a suspect, a woman leaping from a burning building. Our emotions are triggered by a photo of a child playing innocently near the wreckage of a crashed plane and, in another picture, a victim of an auto accident being helped into a hospital. The immediacy of events and moods is preserved in these striking shots. Technical camera information is provided with each picture and the text includes brief biographies of the photographers.
