Legendary filmmaker Ken Burns has a new photography book which includes two photos by fine art photographer Keith Dotson
It's our honor to announce that two Keith Dotson photographs have just been published in the powerful new book Our America: A Photographic History, by noted documentary filmmaker and author Ken Burns (of PBS fame).
Two black and white photographs by Keith Dotson as seen in the Ken Burns book "Our America: A Photographic History."
The cover of "Our America: A Photographic History" by Ken Burns features a photograph made by one of Burns' former teachers.
Our America is a big book — over 300 pages — beautifully designed with one photograph per page followed by extensive notes and credits in the back of the book. Most of the photographs are historical and in the documentary style — befitting Burns career as a socially-conscious documentary filmmaker.
Work by famous photographers like Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Sally Mann, and Michael Avedon (grandson of Richard Avedon) are also featured in the book, alongside important and sometimes grim images from across American history including the periods of the Civil War, the Great Depression, and even back to the very beginnings of photography.
For Keith, the process began with a vague email in 2015 enquiring about a particular photograph, which did eventually make it into the book. Discussions continued periodically over the next six-and-a-half years, with a second photograph selected in the final months prior to completion of the book.
