Laundry Day

Doylestown, PA, 2006So, Sunday was laundry day, and needing something to read, I grabbed A.D. Coleman’s Critical Focus. I bought it a few years ago, along with his Light Readings, and some other books on photo criticism. I have only read Coleman’s books somewhat casually and infrequently, and I am not sure if I actually like his writing or not (though that could be due, in part, to what he was actually writing about). Although, I have realized that these two books are some of the few ways I can gain insight into what was happening in the photoworld of the Seventies through the early Nineties. That might simply be because his writing is more personal than some other criticisms I have read—maybe that reason alone should be a reason for liking him.
