We're excited to have Kathleen Robbins and E. Brady Robinson visit our shop for a book signing! Both will also give a brief artist talk about their books and projects. More about their books below...
Capturing the rich contrasts of the land and the intimate history of generations in the Mississippi Delta, "Into the Flatland," by Kathleen Robbins, is a series of photographs documenting the terrain, people, and culture of her ancestry. The photographer returned to her family's farm Belle Chase as an adult in 2001 after completing graduate studies in New Mexico. She and her brother then lived there for nearly two years, breathing life back into family properties that had been long dormant. The book includes a short story by Cynthia Shearer, a National Endowment for the Arts recipient, and a forward by Tom Rankin, director for the Center for Documentary Studies.
"Art Desks" by E. Brady Robinson began in Washington, D.C. in 2011 and features photographs of the desks and working spaces of artists, curators, art dealers, and critics throughout the East Coast. This series explores the idea of desk as portrait combined with the social experiment of navigating the art world. "Art Desks" is published by Daylight Books with essay by Andy Grundberg.
