Heber Springs Portraits: Continuity and Change in the World Disfarmer Photographed
by Toba Pato Tucker
Publisher's Description
Since the first exhibition of Disfarmer's work in 1976, the art world has wondered about the reclusive portraitist who--like Atget--made glass plate negatives long after easier methods had come to predominate the medium. But they have also wondered about the town he spent his life portraying. Toba Tucker, a documentary portraitist lived in Heber Springs for two years making formal portraits of the surviving subjects of Disfarmer's photographs. The result is a fascinating and beautiful study of small-town America's resilience and its changes.
