About this title


In Angler's Album photographer Charles Traub brings together three arts: fishing, photography and literature. There are 100 photographs which celebrate the ruminative, amusing and exciting aspects of recreational fishing. Complementing the photographs are excerpts from the essays, stories, poems and observations that make up angling's great literature.

From Publishers Weekly:

In order "to create an unexpected view of angling and its aspects," Traub ( Italy Observed in Photography and Literature ) matches quotes by writers as diverse as Plutarch and Norman Maclean, John Donne and James Dickey to fishing-related photos. Many of the silver gelatin prints, daguerreotypes and reproductions of color transparencies show people fishing. Taken by local professional photographers, they incidentally reveal that fishing has been a popular, acceptable activity for women since the days of the earliest cameras. Of special note is a luminous 1920 silver print of speckled trout caught in Lake Superior, a painterly turn-of-the-century autochrome of salmon and Elgin Ciampi's 1960 underwater transparencies. The effect of selected texts and photos, including pictures by Cartier-Bresson, Harold Edgerton and Lee Friedlander, is pleasing but without surprise; TV news broadcaster Kuralt's contribution is a brief personal odyssey through a family fishing album.
