schema:description"A centennial consideration of the great author's vision as expressed in her renowned photography, these forty-three photographs, taken in the 1930s and 1940s with three different cameras, illustrate both the formal and narrative skills of framing the world as only a great short story writer could. They show Eudora Welty (1909-2001) ardently pursuing an audience and honing her technique as she worked behind the lens. Considering light, design, texture, framing, and perspective, she experimented with composition. She tried different films, papers, and exposures, took shots from various angles and distances, and cropped and enlarged photographs in her kitchen darkroom. Then she waited until morning to discover what had been revealed. Paramount in this work are the photographs themselves. Only nine have been published previously. The accompanying essays describe Welty's developing aesthetic and her representations of the world as illustrated by the photographs. Welty took photographs of people, animals, patterns, shadows, and structures--natural and man-made--in Mississippi, Louisiana, New York, and North Carolina. The photographs are paired to contrast and complement, to surprise and suggest, and to please and provoke."@en
