Indoor Outdoor Flow

One room shack, NOTalk about a one-room shack. A New Orleans dwelling, c1959, from Frederic Ramsey Jr’s Been Here and Gone, a lyrical photo journey through the American South (Cassell, 1960).

The book shows “the men and women who have created work songs, spirituals, blues and jazz”, with Ramsey’s lens creating a distancing goldfish bowl as he romanticises “the other” on Catfish Row.
