Staff Reviews

Barnwell makes lovely black and white portraits of the Appalachian farming community. Landscapes, structures, and people are captured with gorgeous use of texture, light, and shadow.

— From Melissa's Picks


The photographs in this collection provide a window onto a world that is quickly fading. Barnwell honors the richness and rhythms of everyday life--people in their homes and at work in the fields--and captures the beauty of the North Carolina mountains. These intimate portraits are complemented by oral histories, derived from conversations between the author and his subjects, through which individual stories unfold, rich in humor, joy, loss, and wisdom.
