The fourth and final volume in Bill Owens' landmark Suburbia series [SUBURBIA (1973; revised edition 1999, Fotofolio), OUR KIND OF PEOPLE (1975), WORKING - I DO IT FOR THE MONEY (1977), and LEISURE (2004)]. In his introduction to LEISURE, photographer Gregory Crewdson writes: "Owens’ photographs belong to an American aesthetic tradition of art that explores the intersection of everyday life and theatricality. Like the paintings of Edward Hopper, the photographs of Walker Evans and Diane Arbus, and the short stories of John Cheever and Raymond Carver, Owens’ photographs find unexpected beauty and mystery within the American vernacular. This collision between normality and strangeness transforms the American landscape into a place of wonder and anxiety."

From the Back Cover:

"This project began in 1968 when I was working as a photojournalist. It was like being a National Geographic photographer with the assignment of photographing my own world. When I finished an assignment, I realized there was so much more that could be done. I was fascinated by how people lived – how they spent their time and money to bring happiness and fulfillment to their lives. I wanted to make a documentary so familiar that it might come from someone’s home photo album. I did what sociologists and anthropologists do – dissect a culture and put it back together to make a whole vision." —Bill Owens
