Mobile Photography & Art Flickr and Instagram Showcase – 22 November 2020

Portraits and Dreams a rare book by Wendy Ewald has been revised and expanded since it was first published in 1985. Officially described as ‘an American masterpiece‘ and no wonder. I have the newly updated version which has already sold out. The content a completely fascinating account of children living in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains in 1975. Ewald’s photography project enabled the children themselves to take photos of their dreams and in somecases nightmares, as she gave each child their own camera to capture what they saw and what they imagined through the lens. This book demonstrates not only the fantasy but also the reality of these children and their families lives. The updated version includes accounts of some of children now as adults and reveals their present lives and notably it seizes our inquisitiveness as to whether any of those dreams or nightmares have in fact turned to reality. Ultimately, this book is rooted in love and shows how even the most paradisiacal of households and I did not really see one in Portraits and Dreams, can still quiver on the periphery of catastrophe. It is a book I will treasure for years to come and once again bolsters the power of photography.
