JOSEPH, Marc. American Pitball.

(Gottingen, Germany): Steidl, 2003.  First edition.  Quarto.  246 pages.  Includes an essay by James Frey.  Over a three-year period Marc Joseph traveled the United States photographing pitbull dogs, their owners, breeders and “old time dog men,” at their homes and yards, and during events related to the breed. Joseph gained full access to this culture via the bonds formed with his subjects, and the fanatical, almost-religious devotion that pitbull fans attribute to the breed is clearly portrayed in his pictures.  A very good copy with inset photo-plate.  This example inscribed by the photographer.
