Surveying photographs produced during the 1930s and 40s by American novelist Morris (b. 1910), this catalogue presents full-page reproductions of 55 images, mainly portraits of farm buildings, storefronts and street scenes that evoke the character of small-town and rural life. Two detailed essays discuss Morris's early involvement in the publication of "photo-texts," his poetic documentary style, and the personal and cultural themes reflected in the exhibited works.
