Arthur Pollock has worked as a photojournalist for over fifty years, both freelance and on staff for several major news outlets. His professional career began in Hammond, IN and Lowell, MA in the nineteen sixties as he documented day-to-day street level stories of the time, and cut his teeth in those towns in the midst of an economic downturn and a cultural revolution. Hired on staff at the Boston Herald in the early nineteen eighties, he worked in the field for over ten years on many important features and was the recipient of numerous awards before becoming Assistant Photo Editor at the end of the decade.

This monograph is the first attempt at chronicling his enormous body of work and contains a cross-section of material from his early days on the streets, all the way up until the early nineteen nineties.

While he may echo the understatement of a news scribe, Pollock’s work clearly pays special homage to the artistry of those iconic shutter artists, Diane Arbus and the legendary New York street lensman of the 30s and 40s, Weegee. Indeed, every picture does tell a story. And in this unique collection, there are hundreds of stories… wonderfully told.
