In just over a decade, Judith Joy Ross has created a radically original body of work within the parameters of traditional photographic technique. Using an old-fashioned 8-by-10-inch view camera mounted on a tripod, Ross creates portraits astonishing in their psychological insight. While she has chosen children as a primary subject, work from other series is also represented, including portraits of visitors to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., and of members of the United States Congress. An interpretive essay introduces the plates, and a chronology and bibliography complete the book. Includes 52 duotone illustrations.
