“A news media photographer for over forty years, Arthur Pollock created images that incorporated great depth and allure with a photojournalistic viewpoint. Reminiscent of the gritty, yet artistic style popularized by Weegee in the forties, the photographs in the book bring to light the daily travails that build the foundation of a city. Starting off professionally in Hammond, Indiana and Lowell, MA in the 1960’s, he documented day to day street level stories of the time, and cut his teeth on towns in the midst of an economic downturn. Hired on staff at the Boston Herald in the early eighties, he worked for over ten years on major features like the Space Shuttle Challenger explosion and was the recipient of numerous awards throughout his time in the field before becoming Assistant Photo Editor at the end of the last decade. He passed away in 2018.”
