JOHN SCHOTT: MOBILE HOMES, 1975-1976 (FROM SET TWO). Nazraeli Press, Paso Robles, 2016. NZ Library, 2. 64 pp. with 54 ills. 38 x 30 cm. ISBN 9781590054390 In English.
Publisher's description: "Encountering the American west for the first time in the early 1970s, I became fascinated with the landscapes and iconography of mobile homes. In a previous century Americans migrated west in Prairie Schooners to become farmers or shopkeepers. After the Second World War they continued this 'Westward Ho!', but now in commercially-fabricated mobile homes, often to retirement. These new pioneers clustered in communities that transformed the western landscape and its built environment through a new architecture of mobility. Mobile home manufacturers produce a range of styles with architectural references that animate cultural aspirations or memories of home and community left behind. After choosing a basic style, new owners make individual touches to the exterior and lawn that transform the generic into the personal. Viewed from a surrounding hillside, mobile home parks look like arabesques of uniform aluminum boxes. On close observation, however, they reveal a rich flora and fauna of personal expression and longing for both individuality and community." - John Schott, from the Preface. The images in Mobile Homes 1975-1976 were made with an 8x10-inch Deardorff view camera in California during 1975 and 1976.
