"Looking at these photographs, the viewer is struck by their lack of cliché and their power to evoke a period that we now regard with nostalgia," Elisabeth Sussman writes in Jimmy DeSana: Suburban. "Bathed in the saturated tones of nightlife, DeSana's images deny the romanticism we could project on this period, now the subject of film and television—the good time of sex, discos, clubs, glamour. With considerable finesse and humor, the pictures capture the uneasy boundary between fun and terror, liberation and fear."
