Description:


Gelatin silver print. 20.3x25.3 cm (8x10").



Signed, titled and dated by Wright Morris on photograph reverse. One of the great chroniclers of the devastation wrought by monocrop agriculture and the ensuing dust bowl of the 1930's, Wright Morris was raised on a dirt farm in Nebraska and lived the experience of the midwestern hardscrabble farm laborer. According to Hinde Haest, curator of the 2020 Wright Morris: The Home Place exhibit at Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam, "He spent his whole life trying to recover his own past...Sometimes he would make things up – his memory and his imagination seemed to intertwine. He seemed to be searching for a fiction that might become his new reality; a reconstruction of his childhood. It was a search for his identity, and an attempt to reconcile his life with himself."

Condition
Mild rippling along top edge, largely confined to margin, ; near fine.
