Wild Blue Yonder, 2016

Little Bear Press

Bruce has just released "All-American XVI: Wild Blue Yonder" through his independent imprint, Little Bear Press. This year's edition includes long-form profiles of Fr. Michael Pfleger, the radical activist priest working to end poverty and gun violence on Chicago's South Side-and Detective First Grade Terry McGhee, a member of the NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force. Bruce documented a recent road trip across West Texas, and broadens his reflections on the Lone Star State with photographic works by Sid Avery, Toni Frisell, Kelly Delay, Wim Wenders, James Evans, and Richard Miller. The late, great, and largely unknown American fashion designer Bill Whitten is celebrated in a tribute that includes interviews with Elton John, Lionel Ritchie, and an essay by his brother, the contemporary painter Jack Whitten. The environmentalist and artist Zaria Forman shares her process, Biaggio Ali Walsh reflects on the influence and legacy of his grandfather, Muhammad Ali, and Suzanne Myers writes about her architect father Barton Myers's iconic Santa Barbara residence.
