A Personal Memoir of 1960s BritainBook - 2012
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 Also included are unpublished informal shots of Hyman’s friend and relative Brian Epstein, the Beatles’ first manager and the man widely credited with shaping the band’s early success. Photographs Found presents the ’60s as a time of dramatic social change in Britain, as it was around the world.
