circa, judicial, judicious levity,

There's no reason that an exhibition whose sole organizing principle is to present photographs taken in a single year should be meaningful, let alone interesting. If anything, the opposite is true: the overall quality of work produced in a given year is apt to be average.
On the other hand, no period is without some good work; judicious selection could make any year look good. And such a selection might suggest other understandings about the period in question.
No doubt that was the thinking behind "1936," at the James Danziger Gallery, and "Circa 1956," a companion show at the 292 Gallery, both in SoHo. Both focus on works made in a given year, although only "1936" adheres closely to that restriction; the show at 292 includes works from throughout the 1950's.

PREFACE

'Nothing like a little judicious levity,' says Michael Finsbury.帶點兒有分寸的輕率是再好不過的

in the text: nor can any better excuse be found for the volume in
the reader's hand. The authors can but add that one of them is
old enough to be ashamed of himself, and the other young enough
to learn better.
