ELAINE MAYES: RECENTLY. Daylight Books, Daylight Community Arts Foundation, Hillsborough, 2014. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 96 pp. with 77 col. ills. 21 x 27 cm. ISBN 9780989798150 In English.
Publisher's description: For the past six years, the photographer Elaine Mayes (born 1936) has been crisscrossing the US, never remaining in one place for more than three or four months at a time. The resulting sequence of stylistically eclectic photographs collected in this volume represents a diary-like record of an itinerant life that seems a far cry from the On the Road-style liberty enjoyed by rebellious young people of the 1950s and 60s -- and yet Mayes' pictures, taken in places that range from the Southern Oregon Coast to Italy, France, Seattle, Washington, DC and New York's Financial District, Tribeca and Brooklyn, are nothing if not joyful, exuberant exercises in freedom and revolt. With this volume, Mayes moves forward from the portrayal of more liberated lifestyles that she began in the 1960s with her pictures from San Francisco's Haight Ashbury and the music counterculture to focus on a broader vista that encompasses our current cultural moment.
