Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Basil Hyman (b. 1936) has taken hundreds of photographs of everyday life in Britain. In Photographs Found he looks back to the Swinging Sixties, miniskirts and all, with an array of charming pictures—plus fascinating ephemera and memorabilia, some of it provided in facsimile—to offer a personal visual diary of a bygone era. Also included are unpublished informal shots of Hymans friend and relative Brian Epstein, the Beatles first manager and the man widely credited with shaping the bands early success. Photographs Found presents the 60s as a time of dramatic social change in Britain, as it was around the world.

About the Author

Basil Hyman is the author of The Lost Album, Collecting Photography, and, with Stephen Bragg, The G-Plan Revolution: A Celebration of British Popular Furniture of the 1950s and 1960s.
