ABOUT SWEETHEART ROLLER SKATING RINK:
Classic documentary photography, at its best, is a transcendent path back to the people of another place and time. Sweetheart Roller Skating Rink is a royal road to that special time in 1972-1973 — when the love generation in America was at its height. The U.S. was reeling from years of war and turbulent social change and progress, but the early 70s was still a time of innocence and exploration. Sweetheart shows us the joyful vigor, fashion, and play of that young crowd searching for fun, escape, and identity in a roller rink on the outskirts of Tampa, Florida.
This sumptuous case-bound edition features twenty-six black and white photographs, each corresponding with letters of the alphabet. Pulled from Debbie Fleming Caffery's deep archive, this book reimagines in an expansive way the essential experience of every childhood — our ABCs. Caffery's Alphabet reaches hearts and teaches minds how the alphabet can play with photographs.
ABOUT AMERICA 101:
Grace’s study "represents the yin and yang of America... In Grace’s America, the ordinary meets the absurd, veneration and irreverence coming in unexpected and delightfully humorous ways, a lighthearted joie de vivre soothes a violent vein, and the sanctity of the individual competes with our continual drive toward collective direction. Indeed, what is perhaps so prescient about Grace’s condensation of the past is how much it resembles the basic structure of our present.”
- Brett Abbott, High Museum of Art Curator of Photography
