Summary:
Renowned photographer Laura Wilson (b. 1939) moved from New England to Texas in 1966 and for more than three decades has captured the majesty, as well as the tragedy, of her adopted home region. As seen in this extraordinary book, Wilson's subjects range from legendary West Texas cattle ranches to impoverished Plains Indian reservations to lavish border town cotillions. Also featured are exquisite portraits of artists who are associated with the region, including Donald Judd, Ed Ruscha, and Sam Shepard. The unforgettable images in 'That Day', many of which are previously unpublished, tell sharply drawn stories of the people and places that have shaped, and continue to shape, the nation's most dynamic and unyielding land. Text from Wilson's journals further animates the photographs, recalling her personal experiences behind the camera at the moment when a particular image was captured. With her unique and incisive eye, Wilson casts a fresh light on the West-a topic of enduring fascination. Exhibition: Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Fort Worth, USA (15.8.2015-14.2.2016).
