Marching Bands, 2016
ISBN: 978-1936658336 – Language: English – Hardcover: 96 pages
Marching Bands, the fifth book by Jules Allen, documents the marching band as a modern, precision art form that fully embodies the love of the public event as a spectacle. Dynamic marching bands breathe the soul and spirit of Africa within the modern world. They create extravagant pageants intended to inspire, educate and entertain. Culled from field trips ranging over a period of almost 30 years, the 96 images within the book, capture the bands as they engage in trash talk, swagger and colloquialisms. Jules Allen, Photographer & Professor, Art & Design, Queensborough Community College, collaborated with the QCC Art Gallery Press in publication of this book.
