    1. Disfarmer may not have known a widespread notoriety in his days, but he certainly knew how to take pictures that could define a generation. Rumored to have sometimes forced his sitters to wait an hour for him to get the light just so, I think it's safe to say, he aspired for his work to not be merely acceptable or mediocre, possessing a practiced precision, and exceptional understanding light. The portraits he took have a strong gravitational pull, magnetic, stark, haunting, (and a good accompan [...]


    2. Disfarmer's portraiture documents an important era in America, as told from his small studio in Heber Springs, Arkansas. There is a gothic, timeless beauty in the awkward poses he captures from the people that wandered in. He was a drunk and was remembered as a cranky old bastard who never took much time making people at ease when he pointed his camera at them. Instead, he would snap whenever he was ready, capturing this strange casual between expression on the common folk faces. I got a lot out [...]


    3. if you are a sucker for photographs found in used books this is a must have. portraits of everyday rural arkansans. it seems as you flip through the book and stop on them and take them in, that here they are in their glory. the people who simply worked and ate dinner and did it again. living ordinary lives. standing in a makeshift little studio with a simple canvas backing and having spent a few cents to be captured there. in a dress. or in overalls or uniform. with their grandmothers and mother [...]


    4. Wonderful photographs - I never get tired of looking at them and wondering what the story behind each one is.This Twin Palms edition is beautifully designed and printed and adds to the images in the first Disfarmer book, published by Addison House in 1976. Given that, I still can't help feeling that the Addison House edition is truer to the subject matter. And having said that, I'm still keeping both editions and will look at and enjoy both.
