yep, it's that time of the year again... - - - - got the final proofs for BELGRADE BELONGS TO ME book, approved them, and that's pretty much it. Can't wait to see the advanced copy, hopefully in a month or so. Everything looks great, and this will without a doubt be my best book so far. The book spans more than 10 years, and it's very personal, cause Belgrade is the city that made me who I am.
The book size and paper stock are the same as IT'S ALL GOOD, but print quality will be much better this time, tritone printing as opposed to duotone, which means blacks will be more black, etc etc ...

THE BLOCK by Herb Goro

Published in 1970 by Random House.

An amazing document of inner city life.

"An account, in pictures and text, of the greatest social disaster in American history: a close-up of the death of a New York City slum and the destruction of the people who live there.

The book is the result of a year spent by the photographer Herb Goro in a decayed slum in New York's East Bronx. More than a hundred fifty thousand inhabitants of the area live and die in the rotted, sometimes abandonend tenements. The text consist of tape-recorded interviews with the people whom we see in the pictures - the tenants, the police, the men and women dying, and the parents of the children being born, Theirs is the hopeless struggle to survive in the city which has no need for these people and which barely manages any longer to even keep them alive.

THE BLOCK shows us how the people in this neighborhood live, but it concentrates on the lives of three adolescents, as they come of age, struggle briefly to survive, and fail. In New York there are countless people, many of them hardly more than children, who live and die like those on THE BLOCK. This book confronts us with a profound social pathology and with the personal misery that accompanies it."
