Ecco Press, 1987 First edition Hardcover with dust jacket, 64 pages, 240 x 310 mm Condition: Very Good
A collection of Bill Burke’s black and white portraits all shot on Polaroid film that began in 1975 as the Kentucky Bicentennial Documentary project but extended far beyond that to other parts. The almost biblical cast of Burke’s portraits, an insight into the human condition, forces us to confront the realities of these strangers' existence. His work is compared to the portraits of Southern tenant farmers made by Walker Evans, to Mike Disfarmer's Ozark mountain people, and to Richard Avedon's contemporary portfolio, In the American West.
Preface by Andy Grundberg and essay by Raymond Carver.
