Suburbia by Bill Owens ( Book )
15 editions published between 1972 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is about my friends and the world I live in. In the fall of 1968 I began working as a photographer for the Livermore (California) Independent. My daily routine took me into the homes of hundreds of families and into contact with the social life of three suburban communities. The people I met enjoy the life-style of the suburbs. They have realized the American Dream. They are proud to be home own and to have achieved material success. To me nothing seemed familiar, yet everything was very, very familiar. At first I suffered from culture shock. I wanted to photograph everything, thousands of photographs. Then slowly I began to put my thoughts and feelings together and to document Americans in Suburbia. It took two years. The photos in this book express the lives of the people I know. The comments on each photograph are what the people feel about themselves."--Author's statement, p. [3]
