I’m excited to announce the publication today of a powerful new photography book from filmmaker and author Ken Burns (of PBS fame), which includes two of my photographs. Our America: A Photographic History is a hefty book with more than 300 pages.
It tells a visual history of the United States using historic photographs from the earliest days of the nation and of photography, leading up to modern times . . . that’s where my photographs are presented, near the end of the book.
The book includes photographs by some of the world’s great names in photography, including Walker Evans, Robert Frank, and Sally Mann. It’s a beautiful combination of two of my favorite things — art and history.
Read a terrific essay by Ken Burns about the book here.
Or, read an insightful interview with Ken Burns about the book with The Washington Post here.
I was quoted in the book
The majority of the book is designed with one photo per page, followed by a section near the back that includes notes about each photograph. Graciously, Burns, et al quoted from my blog post here when writing about my raindrops photograph, “The grand sweep of a lifetime is made up of countless vague impressions, forgotten moments, and unnoticed instances of beauty.”
