Cannibal in the Mirrorby Paul Fleischman, John Whalen (Photographer)
Quotes from explorers, missionaries and writers blend with modern photos to explore the theme of 'uncivilized' cultures and their presence in American society. Primitive customers are first described by Fleischman, then facing pages provide photos of present-day, mainstream activities. A thought-provoking, if not hard to categorize, presentation.
