Robert D’Allesandro: “Glory”



“‘Glory’, the title of D’Alessandro’s 1973 book of photographs, is as understated and as charged as his pictures, each of which includes an American flag. Still timely more than three decades later, twenty-five of those pointedly black and white images remind us that, where the stars and stripes are concerned, ambivalence, irreverence and jingoistic display are nothing new.”

Vince Aletti, The New Yorker, March 30, 2009
