Delivery policy (edit with Customer reassurance module)
In this book the work of three grand masters of American photography are used to reflect the transformation of the urban model in the second half of the twentieth century. Walter Rosenblum portrays the dynamism of a city like New York and contrasts with the dehumanisation detected in the work of Stephen Shore, where only their vehicles suggest the presence of inhabitants. The abandonment of the centre, converted into a financial enclave or immigrant ghetto, created residential zones with a homogeneous population that Owens captures with sociological rigour and pop humour.
