Bill Owens produced four volumes for his Suburbia series of books that are collections of his sharp (in clarity and wit) photographs and Leisure joins Suburbia (1973), Our Kind of People (1975) and Working – I Do It for the Money (1977) as the final entry. Working as a photojournalist in the late sixties, Owens was intrigued by his subjects, the ordinary folk of the American middle class who fled the urban areas in search of more space and a better life. In Leisure, Owens’ lens is trained on what these suburbanites did with their free time.
