THE BOY

A Photographic Essay

Edited by
Georges St. Martin
and
Ronald C. Nelson

First Edition: September, 1964

PREFACE

Ah! happy years! once more who would not be a boy? Byron

In a world grown increasingly complex, where violence and confusion are commonplace, the human heart leaps at the recall of innocence. This book is a testament to the beauty of innocence, and to the human capacity for recalling that beauty.

To a boy, boyhood is timeless and eternal. There seems to be no tomorrow. To the adult observer, boyhood lasts but a fleeting moment; it is gone in the twinkling of an eye. The art of capturing the fleeting moment in time has long been the province of the poet, the painter - and especially the photographer, who, through the selective eye of his camera, captures and preserves forever the ephemeral image.


In this book we have tried to assemble a group of photographs which epitomize the irrepressible spirit of youth. It is less a documentary than an idyl, meant to be enjoyed as a boy enjoys a summer day. If the emphasis here is on the outdoor life, then this is because we as city-dwellers preferred to think of boys close to nature: fishing, swimming, camping, making "one long bathing of a summer's day." or just lazing away the days "that were as long as twenty are now.'' There are scenes of school, of course, and even some of boys working, but basically these are happy, carefree boys, enjoying the long halcyon days when all the world seems made just for them, and summer stretches a mile long. Free from adult curbs and restraints, they explore the world about them with all the freshness and exuberance of youth, darting through waterfalls, exploring great cities, charting secret places, whether in Barcelona or Bayonne, Corsica or California.

From thousands of pictures taken in all parts of the world, we selected those which seemed to us to possess that vital spark. While we tried to suggest the variety and scope of the world of boyhood, inclusiveness was always subordinated to the individual picture. Many of these pictures are technically superb; others are here because they have a sense of the "captured moment" when a boy is most a boy. Our only regret is for the pictures for which we had no room.

"All joy is young," a poet said. If through this book we have brought some part of that joy to the reader, then our efforts will have been rewarded.

The Editors
