What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

How fortunate we are to have these absorbing portraits. First they seduce our eyes and our hearts, then they open our minds.--Peter Galassi, former chief curator of photography, Museum of Modern Art, New York



Looking through Hugh Mangum's lens, we are transported to another time. History comes to life in these diverse portraits of southern lives.--Barbara Krauthamer, coauthor of Envisioning Emancipation: Black Americans and the End of Slavery



These faces, at times smiling, at times stern, sometimes hatted, sometimes bare, are as ghostly as they are concrete. Often formal, even with chickens, they make the twenty-first century seem dull with all its bright colors. Where We Find Ourselves is a gift. Hugh Mangum saw things we need to keep looking for.--Randall Kenan, author of The Fire This Time
