Om boka

After thirty-three years, Paula Chamlee returned home to photograph and write about the farm where she grew up on the High Plains of the Texas Panhandle, a farm where her parents, now in their late eighties, still farm their 1100 acres all by themselves. With intensity and insight, she has created a work of extraordinary depth and cultural significance. This emotionally charged and aesthetically powerful document provides an intimate look at her home place and reveals a way of life and value system that are quickly vanishing. Chamlees writing in the introduction sets her photographs in the context of Texas history and her family heritage. In addition, her extensive 'Notes on the Photographs' provides information and insights about the pictures and evokes the flavour of farm life in the twentieth century. The combination of photographs and writing create a book that will find a place of enduring value and significance not only in Texas art and history, but also in the archives of American art and cultural studies.
