Cocaine True, Cocaine Blue
by Eugene Richards
Publisher's Description
Acclaimed photographer Eugene Richards goes where other photojournalists will not. His work is closer, tougher, and filled with integrity and compassion. His new book Cocaine True, Cocaine Blue, focuses on the embattled inhabitants of three urban neighborhoods and reveals the often ignored plight of minority citizens who are forced to live in communites where crack traffic is the primary economic activity. These people do not choose drugs; they have no choice but to be invaded by violence and drug trafficking in their homes and communities. This book is a history of our times, a frightening document of complex human drama that educates while challenging the fundamental conceptions we all have about drug users and the drug world.
