These forty-three photographs, taken in the 1930s and 1940s with three different cameras, illustrate both the formal and narrative skills of framing the world as only a great short story writer could. They show Eudora Welty (1909-2001) ardently pursuing an audience and honing her technique as she worked behind the lens. Considering light, design, texture, framing, and pers ...more

Small volume of Welty's work, some of which I had never seen. There are some really nice images without people: a spiraling fishing net along the river, a tricycle with the body of a horse, laundry in someone's backyard. There's a really lovely shot of a potter working at his wheel. I look at a lot of photography books and while I like a good deal of it, their are few photographers' work that I connect with and want to emulate as much as Welty's.
I thoroughly enjoy Welty's black-and-white photography: the people, the architecture, sometimes the oddball thing, and how she plays with lighting and texture, among other things.
What photography is really for is still pretty much of a mystery
