Overview

These elegant and evocative photographs portray the oldest continuously farmed county in New York as it was and and as it is today.
Abandoned countryside and discarded buildings stand as silent memorials to the once-prosperous farming community of Schoharie County, New York. With an unique eye for the aesthetics of age, acclaimed photographers Steve Gross and Susan Daley honor this beautiful, troubled landscape in a collection of more than one hundred black-and-white photographs. Their work honors a legacy both precarious and perpetual, dotted with crumbling houses and barns, fallow fields and overrun woods.Novelist Jeffrey Lent writes, "In an America that often seems confused and uncertain of its future at this period in our history, Steve Gross and Susan Daley offer something quietly optimistic—the idea that we can, if we push through the dense covering foliage, arrive again at heightened expectations of ourselves.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Photographers Gross and Daley have documented their distinctive perspective on the decay of rural Schoharie County in upstate New York. As architectural photographers and residents of Schoharie County, they illustrate their subjects-schoolhouses, barns, churches, Masonic halls, firehouses, and general stores- in a style that avoids kitsch and sentimentality. The photographers respectfully pay homage to the eras they are representing; there are no digital shots in this reverential documentary series. Gross and Daley shoot with a simple wooden camera and glass plates, a style that is in keeping with the historical nature of their architectural subjects. There are surprises that invite a close look-a doghouse covered in early 20th-century New York license plates, a 1940s-era car abandoned in an orchard, a farmhouse hidden by overgrown weeds. The book features a fine introductory essay by novelist Jeffrey Lent and a photographers' note on the actual locations in the photographs. The authors have published seven earlier books, including Old Houses and Creole Houses. Recommended for general collections.
