A Family of the Land

WilkinsonFamilyLand

Book Description:

In a series of photographs spanning almost four decades, photojournalist Guy Gillette documented life in and around his wife's family's ranch near Crockett, Texas. Brilliantly composed, these wonderful black-and-white photographs, shown in A Family of the Land: The Texas Photography of Guy Gillette (University of Oklahoma Press, 2013), offer a portrait of a community over a half century during which remarkably little has changed.
