Synopsis: A fascinating collection of portraits of the townspeople of Heber Springs, Arkansas. Disfarmer was not well liked by the townfolk but they came to him to get their photos taken. He made no attempt to elicit a smile or adhere to any other other convention of commercial portraiture poses. So the photos tend to be of people as they were; not as they might have been "photographed." 135 pages; illustrated through out with b&w photographic plates; 10.25 x 11 inches.

Book Description Addison House, Danbury, NH, 1976. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. First Edition. (4) 135 pp, acknowledgments, The Photographer; The People; The Time; The Photographs; The b&w Plates. Text by Julia Scully: First Edition, 1976 "Mike Disfarmer (1884-1959) was an American photographer whose portraits of everyday people in rural Arkansas became regarded as art some years after his death. Born Mike Meyer in Indiana, his family moved to Arkansas in 1892. He changed his surname to "Disfarmer" possibly to break with his family's agrarian roots, the first move in a maverick career that embraced both obscurity and a rigorous aesthetic. Disfarmer maintained a portrait studio in his hometown of Heber Springs, Arkansas, and photographed members of the local community for small fees. But his "penny portraits" were far more than mere keepsake photographs. Employing a stark realism and often lengthy, unnervingly mute sitting sessions, Disfarmer produced a consistent stream of portraits that, according to some, strip his subjects into an uncanny intimacy. His photographs are said by some to capture the essence of a particular community in a particular time with piercing solemnity and a touching simplicity. His reclusive lifestyle has left many details of his life obscure or uncertain. A large cache of negatives shot by Disfarmer were found in the 1970s in Heber Springs by Peter Miller who spent a year on a bicentennial grant cleaning, preserving and cataloging the negatives." Price clipped. Minute chipping along top edge spine dj with rubbed corner tips of smae, else, Pristine, no wear. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. black cloth with gilt lettering to front board and spine. Size: 4to. Bookseller Inventory # 001068
