Vanderbilt (1905-92), who called himself an "iconographer," is perhaps best known for his work organizing such collections of historical photographs as the Farm Security Administration archives at the Library of Congress and other collections at the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, where he served as archivist and curator. This book sums up his life's work as a photographer and analyst of photographic metaphor. In it, he pairs historical photographs (mostly portraits and interiors) with his own landscape work to suggest intuitive connections that are frequently too subtle for even the most dedicated reader. His own text--philosophical, evocative, and poetic--includes quotations from James Agee, Robert Frost, Ben Shahn, and others. This highly personal and idiosyncratic work will interest those who appreciate Vanderbilt's important contribution to historical research using photographs.
