Bill Owens is a significant American cultural figure due to his photography alone, but he has done so much more than that. He was one of the pioneers of the . microbrew movement, created one of the first brew pubs, started American Brewer and several other magazines, and in his 8th decade of life is spearheading the booming microdistillery industry.

He is best known for his photographs of suburban domestic scenes taken in the East Bay and published in the book Suburbia (1973). Owens is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and two National Endowment for the Arts Grants.

I feel a book, unlike a photo exhibit or magazine story, is a permanent record. My books have to communicate with the viewer and say something about the American Dream. To this type of photography, on the printed page, I have made a commitment. Bill Owens: Altamont 1969.

The book opens with an appropriately suburban story by . Homes (which, strangely, is riddled with punctuation errors), and closes with two short essays, one by Owens on the Altamont assignment that bo Despite a lurking Blue Velvet feel to the photographs, Bill Owens never mocks or ridicules. Irony abounds, yes, but irony is a useful tool for understanding and appreciating the zany sprawl of American life.

A black-and-white photograph captures a woman, curlers in her hair and a baby in her arms, standing in a messy kitchen and saying, “How can I worry about the damned dishes when there are children dying in Vietnam?” California photographer Bill Owens is best known for his critically acclaimed series Suburbia, which was published as a monograph in 1972, and has long been considered one of the classic photo books of the era. For this influential and evocative project, Owens simply shot friends and acquaintances in his Livermore, California, neighborhood and allowed them to speak for themselves. Ordinary people had rarely been so riveting.A comprehensive monograph, this volume consists of several sections of work from 1969 to the present, opening at the height of flower power, with images of the Beat generation, Woodstock and the protests against Vietnam. Owens has always remained intrigued by America as a subject: there follows a series of images focusing on urban America, its endless grids and homogeneous cities. In his most recent photos, many of which are in color and previously unpublished, Owens reveals how suburbia has evolved in the last 40 years--from the friendly place he captured in the 1970s to one characterized by sprawl and anonymity.
Reviews about Bill Owens (5):

I love the artist, but the image quality of the book is not good.
Quinthy
It's pretty good, not amazing, not excellent, but pretty good. This is a retrospective sampling Owen's work through the decades and various projects. I personally prefer his color work. For the price, you can't go wrong. I wouldn't pay more than $30 for this book, though. It does give you a broad sense of his work and will help guide you to the next more specifically focused Owen's book, and for $10, that's worth it.

Bill Owens is a significant American cultural figure due to his photography alone, but he has done so much more than that. He was one of the pioneers of the U.S. microbrew movement, created one of the first brew pubs, started American Brewer and several other magazines, and in his 8th decade of life is spearheading the booming microdistillery industry.

Bill is also a nut, a force of nature, and fun to drink with, as you might imagine.

Except for the fact that he always has a camera with him, you wouldn't know Bill is a renowned fine art photographer. He doesn't talk about photography. He seldom talks about himself in any context. Bill almost exclusively talks about the next thing, whatever that might be.

Bill's photography is documentary. It's never contrived, although he often has mischief in mind when deciding where to point his lens. His subject is ordinary life in America from the sixties to now and, specifically, it is Bill's own life we're watching unfold, the places where he has found himself and the events he considered interesting enough to shoot.

Bill's most famous photography collection is Suburbia, but his most famous photographs, the ones you probably have seen, are the images from Altamont in 1968, which are included in this volume.

In addition to being a great sampler of Bill's oeuvre, this book includes a good amount of commentary, so you get a more complete picture of the guy himself.
