Eudora Welty [PDF]

by Eudora Welty
Reynolds Price, in the introduction of this luminous book of Eudora Welty's "snapshot" photographs, quotes her as revealing:

"...my wish, indeed my continuing passion, would be not to point the finger in judgment but to part a curtain, that invisible shadow that falls between people, the veil of indifference to each other's presence, each other's wonder, each other's human plight."

These snapshots do just that — they part the curtains. (Welty had little photographic training and did not stage her subjects and thus preferred the term "snapshot" rather than "photograph" as a representation of her work.) She captures moments in time with honesty, a lack of pretension, and overwhelming compassion.

Pair these photos with her atmospheric writing and you'll float. Or at least I did.
