Synopsis: A photographic documentary captures the essence of Black life on the Mississippi Delta.

From Library Journal: In these two works, Mauskopf and Reed capture the black experience in late-20th-century America with powerful documentary images that will remain with the viewer long after the books are closed. Reed, the first black photographer for Magnum, has photographed all over the world but is drawn most strongly to the daily lives of blacks in America. His book is a compilation of photographs, made over the last two decades in many American cities, that contrasts pain and celebrations, riots and prayer meetings, births and funerals, black professionals and the unemployed. Parks, himself a photographer, contributes an essay that reflects on the images and the man who made them. Mauskopf presents a quieter collection of images made in one part of the South, the most isolated black communities of the Mississippi Delta, where time seems to have stopped in midcentury. The photographs are full of love, joy, and religious faith and are richly reproduced here as sheet-fed gravures. Mauskopf portrays the poorest Americans, who are nonetheless rich in family, church, and community bonds. He documents the unifying and dominant role of religion as well as the joys and sustenance provided by music, dance, romance, family life, and the land itself. These images capture a sense of place so powerfully that captions aren't necessary, though a brief and poetic essay by novelist Kenan nicely complements the photographs. Both books are recommended for all collections on black history, American studies, and photographic history and art.?Kathleen Collins, New York Transit Museum Archives, Brooklyn

Book Description Das Leben und die Kultur der afro-amerikanischen Gemeinden am Mississippi-Delta - stille Bilder voller Kraft, Anmut - und auch quälender Armut. Hier leben die Menschen heute noch wie im 18. Jahrhundert. Die stillen schwarzweißen Bilder sind beeindruckend schön und berührend und zeugen von einer Intimität zwischen Fotograf und Gemeinde, die außerordentlich gewesen sein muss. Für Fotofreunde ebenso wie für an der Geschichte der Schwarzen Bevölkerung Amerikas interessierte Leser. Mit einem eindringlichen Text des Autors Randall Kenan (Text engl.). 28 x 19 cm, 99 Seiten, durchg. Duotone-Abb., geb. Bookseller Inventory # 666009
