Riassunto: A compelling portrait of three communities penetrated by drugs and isolation: East New York, North Philadelphia, and the Red Hook housing projects in Brooklyn, New York.
With a chilling and informative afterword by Dr. Stephen W. Nicholas, who works as a pediatric AIDS physician in Harlem, Cocaine True, Cocaine Blue reveals how first steps toward solutions to overcome the drug trade have actually contributed to public denial and further isolation of the trapped communities. Cocaine True, Cocaine Blue is a history of our times, a compelling, terrifying document that will educate us and promote dialogue, a first step toward affecting change.
From Publishers Weekly:
Richards's searing photo-essay on inner-city communities devastated by the cocaine-crack epidemic brings into sharp focus the colossal failure of the "war on drugs." His unsparing black-and-white photographs--spliced with interviews with dealers, drug users and frustrated police officers--cover only three locales: North Philadelphia and the Brooklyn, New York, neighborhoods of East New York and Red Hook. Yet the havoc drugs wreak on lives, families and neighborhoods--as cocaine and heroine addiction intersect with poverty, AIDS, homelessness, joblessness and the availability of guns--affects every American city. Richards, who has won many photojournalism awards, neither condemns nor sensationalizes his subjects in his forceful documentary. This volume complements a traveling exhibit opening at Manhattan's International Center for Photography.
