Publisher's Description:

Black and White is a book of 32 evocative images of political conflict and confrontations in the streets taken by Howard Epstein when he was a photographer for Liberation News Service.

The collection of images is a visceral flashback to the political turmoil of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Epstein's photographs will resonate both for people who lived through those struggles and those organizing and protesting today.

...

Howard Epstein was a collective member and staff photographer at Liberation News Service from 1969 to 1974 and a printer for the politically progressive Inkworks Press collective from 1980 until the shop's closure in 2015. Epstein used his talents as a photojournalist to challenge state power and to promote an alternative vision of social and economic justice during the tumultuous Vietnam War era and the Nixon presidency. His grainy black-and-white images of conflict and challenges to authority still resonate in today’s political climate.

During his tenure at Inkworks Press, Epstein worked long hours cranking out political propaganda of all kinds, printing for diverse environmental and social justice groups such as the Black Panther Party, the Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair, ANSWER, the San Francisco Poster Brigade, the ACLU, Mother Jones, Black Lives Matter, and many more.
