Truth or Consequences PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Truth or Consequences free pdf Nick Waplington has taken photographs in and around Truth or Consequences, a small town situated in New Mexico, for nearly ten years. Typical and unremarkable in many ways, the town's extraordinary name derives from a radio quiz show to which the town and its residents have been inextricably linked ever since the show came to town in 1950. Waplington shows us the town behind the name, the lives of its people and the landscape they live in while at the same time constructing a personal tribute to American photography, paying homage to the great pioneers of the genre like Edward Weston and Walker Evans, Lee Friedlander and Paul Strand.
