SX-70'S the book
SX 70s existed before cell phones, texting and tweeting ... all the amazing advances that have enriched life but have also chipped away at our sense of privacy. SX 70s were passed around at parties and people just had fun with them. It was all about immediacy and instant gratification. No one was afraid of being photographed back then because it was more likely a picture would end up in the back of someone's drawer than on Facebook, You Tube or the front page. So people were free, spontaneous, a little exhibitionistic. They let their guard down, they were intimate, maybe even a little outrageous. Nobody worried too much about consequences. There was a sort of shared promise that things could remain a secret.
