photo-eye Book Reviews: Coney Island by Johnny Miller and Baptiste Lignel
"'No photographer in their right mind had ever meticulously brought back home a sample of stinky Coney Island trash,' write Sophie and Bruce Gilden in their slim wax paper catalogue (written in French and English) for Baptiste Lignel and Johnny Miller's evocative Coney Island. Coney Island, which won a prize at this spring's New York Photo Festival, is like the real Coney Island - vivacious, brazen and decidedly unsanitized (and maybe even unsanitary!)." -- from Joscelyn Jurich's review of Coney Island with photographs by Johnny Miller and Baptiste Lignel.
Read the whole review of Coney Island in photo-eye Magazine.
