Summary

Summary

Sartor, a photographer and research associate at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, has woven together a selection of b&w photographs with excerpts from the notebooks and correspondence of William Gedney to present both an illustration of his work and his own personal dreams, expectations, and desires. It is a look both at the art of a talented photographer, and the inner life of an at times lonely man. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
