Although rooted in Buswell’s experience as a lifelong Montanan, the photographs in this book are no more (or less) “about” Montana than James Joyce’s Dubliners, Portrait of an Artist, or Ulysses are “about” Dublin.
In this first book featuring the breadth of Barbara Van Cleve's subject matter, readers experience her other themes, including Rodeo as Dance, striking night scenes, the Great Montana Centennial Cattle Drive series, and documentation of the Spanish Mission Trail in Baja California, Mexico.
What is the evolving relationship between words and images in the photographic essay? Klingensmith explores this and other questions in In Appropriate Distance as she traces the development of the photographic essay from the 1890s to the 1990s and beyond.

“Cordelia Bailey’s strength within this body of work is in depicting psychosocial aspects in each photographic scene. She develops her own visual poetry, providing fixed points of reference for us to consider perceptions rather than realities—both hers and our own.”—Madeline Yale Preston, excerpted from “People and Creatures: Reinventing Theater from the Real”
