From the Introduction by Andy Grundberg: Such is the almost biblical cast in Burke's portrait theater, in which the signs of a bedrock, blue-collar America are assembled for what seems a final curtain call." From the publisher: "This collection of photographs forces us to confront the realities of these strangers' existence. Andy Grundberg compares these pictures to the portraits of Southern tenant farmers made by Walker Evans, to Mike Disfarmer's Ozark mountain people, and to Richard Avedon's contemporary portfolio, In the American West." Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 105077
