Abstract:

" ... These eloquent photographs of our vanishing American peasantry, ridiculed by the middle class as hillbillies, disclose a character that is altogether humbling ... To look at the lined, weathered faces of Christopher Lewis, Ella Webster, and Mrs. Bird Patten is to be reminded of the humanity and rooted communal life of these Southern Americans who are counted now simply as bureaucratic statistics in the poverty program. The recovery of Doris Ulmann's portraiture is typical of Jargon's cultural husbandry."[4].
