'immensely wonderful' - Brain Pickings

Jens S. Jensen. Boy on the Wall, Hammarkullen, Gothenburg, 1973.

Hurry Up and Wait is a whimsical collection of images that capture people in motion or not. In snapshots by the likes of Lee Friedlander, Stephen Shore, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Dorothea Lange, Garry Winogrand, Helen Levitt, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Walker Evans, some people stride forth, dash across streets, race on bicycles, and jump over puddles, while others form snaking lines, daydream on park benches, and linger on sidewalks with friends.

With 11 new vibrant illustrations by Kalman inspired by photographs in MoMAs collection, and thought-provoking prose by Handler that ponder the merits of action, Hurry Up and Wait is a spirited reflection on the daily rhythms of life.
