Hometown by Barbara Peacock
33 years of photography of daily life, events, and rituals of American Life in one town from 1982-2015
From the Foreword:
Hometown is not only about Westford, the town where she grew up and which she called home for over thirty years, but it is also about where she took up photography and took her images. In this book, divided into two sections, she takes us along the path of her life. We start this soulful journey with the early square images that have the subdued color palette of the ’80s medium format film. Although she keeps her distance, it’s clear that she belongs. The images are imbued with poetry. They are delicate, and they show, with a certain nostalgia, an era gone by, a way of life of a small community with all its rituals and celebrations.
