Description - On Assignment: Esther Bubley by Bonnie Yochelson

In collaboration with Yochelson, Tracy Schmid, Archivist of the Bubley estate, and Jean Bubley, Executor of the estate, contribute original research and interviews with Esther's colleagues and contemporaries - John Morris and Gordon Park, among others - highlighting her achievements and accomplishments. The book includes seventy-five of her finest images as well as magazine layouts, which illustrate how Bubley's photographs were originally seen by millions of Americans. While Bubley's talent was well recognized at the time - her work was shown in three Museum of Modern Art exhibitions - she was not a celebrity and did little to promote herself. She has received far less attention than she deserves; this book aims to introduce a selection of her best work to a wider audience.
