Marion Post Wolcott

Looking For The Light: The Hidden Life and Art of Marion Post Wolcott
by Paul Hendrickson
Publisher's Description
"Marion Post Wolcott's magnificent images of rural America in the 1930s are among the treasures of American photography." This poignant biography is illustrated with seventy-seven of her powerful photographs, which are remarkable for their "touching and personal quality." The resonance of this biography stems from the tension in Wolcott's life as a photographer, which was abruptly truncated by her marriage at the age of thirty-one. After her marriage, and the responsibility of raising three young children engulfed her, she ended her photographic career. "The meaning and consequences of her decision are at the emotional center of this compelling book. . . ."--the publisher.
