Folklorist Robert Cochran worked with Grice to select these photographs from the thousands he has taken across a lifetime. They organized the work chronologically, reflecting Grice's early years in small-town Arkansas, his travel as a serviceman in World War II, and his long career in Pine Bluff. Cochran's accompanying chapters link Grice to the great tradition of American community photographers. He also shows how work for pay -- at the Arkansas Agricultural, Mechanical and Normal College in Pine Bluff; at the Arkansas State Press daily newspaper; through his own studio -- shaped Grice's work. Cochran shows that Grice not only made his living taking photographs for jobs, but that he also made his own life by making photographs for himself -- and now for history.
