Bill Owens’ Bookstore
We have signed copies of these three books for you to enjoy.
In his introduction to LEISURE, photographer Gregory Crewdson writes: “Owens photographs belong to an American aesthetic tradition of art that explores the intersection of everyday life and theatricality. Like the paintings of Edward Hopper, the photographs of Walker Evans and Diane Arbus, and the short stories of John Cheever and Raymond Carver, Owens photographs find unexpected beauty and mystery within the American vernacular. This collision between normality and strangeness transforms the American landscape into a place of wonder and anxiety.”
