Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Published in connection with the touring exhibition of the same name, this volume's 166 b&w photographs are evocatively nostalgic, even for those who have never seen a palmetto house, smelled freshly-roasted French coffee, or heard the sound of a washboard-accordian duo. De Caro traces this photographic tradition and presents a historical survey of the relationship between documentary photography and folklife in Louisiana from the last half of the 19th century to the present.
