COME AGAIN WHEN YOU CAN’T STAY SO LONG - MANHATTAN, KANSAS
The great ice sheets passed over hills and valleys, carrying with them great loads of rock, gravel, sand, and clay which they ground and scraped from the surface. Rocks and boulders, frozen into the bottom of the glacier, scratched and grooved the solid rock beneath. As the ice sheets melted, the accumulated materials were left behind”
—Kansas, A Guide To the Sunflower State (WPA, 1939)
Your Guide to Vermont, Tara Wray, originally hails from the sprawling flat lands of the Great Plains. After a long absence, she returned to visit her grandmother and produced an incredible photobook documenting their time together.
It explores mortality, the idea of family, relationships that remain etched into a place, and cat cheese. We are simultaneously reminded of our own grandmothers and granted an intimate portrait of a unique woman.
We snapped up a copy several weeks ago and have found that it migrates from room to room. We leaf through pages on the living room couch and revisit images as we wait for the toast to burn. You are heartily encouraged to get your own book here: http://tarawray.bigcartel.com/
Speaking of Tara Wray… we, too, snagged a copy of this a few weeks ago and I was trying to put into words how much I enjoyed the book — her words, her photos — when I found American Guide’s great write-up. I mean…. “It explores mortality, the idea of family, relationships that remain etched into a place, and cat cheese. We are simultaneously reminded of our own grandmothers and granted an intimate portrait of a unique woman.” Don’t you want to read that?!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!The American Guide
Tara Wray has been killin’ it as our new Photography Editor for the last ~4 months. Check out this awesome collection of her contributions. And send her some stuff if you’re interested in having your images considered, too?
