5 out of 5 stars A landark in the history of artistic endeavor, December 7, 2008
By Llazlo M.
Ten years ago A KIND OF RAPTURE was published. Toni Morrison boldly states in the Introduction that this collection of photographs by Robert Bergman will "forever mark a place in the history of artistic endeavor." You might accept this claim simply as generous enthusiasm--until this astonishing gallery of portraits unfolds before your eyes. Not since the publication of Robert Franks THE AMERICANS (1958, French edition) has any photographic book searched the soul of America with such unexpected and artistically profound results. Like Robert Frank, Robert Bergman set out by car, traveling across America, capturing unplanned encounters with a simple 35mm camera. Bergmans book, A KIND OF RAPTURE, was published in 1998. Exactly four decades subsequent to THE AMERICANS, the world was given a photobook comparable in vision and originality to Robert Franks landmark book. Open A KIND OF RAPTURE and you will conclude it was well worth the wait.
