Time pieces: photographs, writing, and memory
In "Time Pieces, award-winning novelist and photographer Wright Morris provides an introspective investigation into the relationships between photographs and text. This seminal collection of essays, on subjects ranging from portraits of pioneers in the American West to writings by Susan Sontag and Henry James, provides a kaleidoscope of "time pieces" that serve to illuminate a complex, expressive, and evolving art form. It is Morris's singular gift that he is able to bring out such a rich and vibrant dialogue between the world of photography and the world of literature.
