About this title


In Not a Good Sign, Don House takes us on a photographic romp through the back roads of his life. Instead of the powerful portraiture and landscape work for which he is best known, in this eclectic mix of mistakes, misspellings, and misplacements, he sets aside his slow, methodical largeformat ways and shoots from the proverbial hip for the pure pleasure of it—over fifty black-and-white postcards from the road.

House sees signs, and especially those that speak louder

than intended, as a form of communication with the locals, a little window on the community as he passes through. Shunning the interstates gives House the opportunity to cruise the back roads as part of his normal work-a-day routine. Mostly shot in the South andMidwest, it becomes, for us, an album of a region, in concentric circles around his beloved Arkansas home.

Never mocking, only smiling, he calls his back roads

choice an expression of love, really, and we, the readers, get a little glimpse of that love affair—from duck pluckers to fat hogs—we’re riding shotgun, windows down, hair blowing, camera ready, always ready.

About the Author:

When photographer Don House is not out roaming the back roads, you will find him working in his studio and darkroom, in an isolated corner of northwest Arkansas, not far from Fayetteville. His images are found in publications as diverse as the Wall Street Journal and Backpacker Magazine, and have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the country. A collection

of his landscape work was published in Buffalo Creek Chronicles: Diary of a Cattle Ranch on the Southern Plains—a collaboration with writer Gary Lantz and rancher Sue Selman (Phoenix International, Inc. 2002).
