Lisa, I will have to return later to finish my review of Joe’s Junk Yard, which I really like. It explores the best use of text in photo books (IMHO), which is to amplify the photographs by adding personal angles that the images simply can’t offer. Like, who would’ve guessed that you come from a long line of junkmen? Well, maybe photography, in its gatherings of various flotsam and jetsam of our lives, isn’t too far afield from the life of the scrapper.
I have to pull together all the financial f&j of my life to get my taxes done. I’ll try to get back as soon as I can.
