About this title


Foreword by photographer Bob Adelman: "Down Home is a social portrait of rural Wilcox County, and particularly its county seat, Camden, which is 40 miles south of Selma and 70 miles southwest of Montgomery in the heart of black-belt Alabama. The photographs were taken over a five year period. The text is in the residents' own words. As I photographed the people in the book, I tried to render them as vividly and precisely as possible. Now they seem like characters caught in a dream -- part pleasurable fantasy of revered traditions, ante-bellum homes and plantations; and part the nightmare of racism and poverty (in 1960, Wilcox was one of the ten poorest counties in the nation). At the insistence of the machine and demands for equality, the dream begins to dissolve."
