Bill Burke has received much recognition during the past fifteen years with grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Guggenheim Foundation, and the Ford Foundation. In this collection of his portraits of residents of Kentucky, the deep South, and other regions, critic Andy Grundberg compares Burke's work to Walker Evans' portraits of Southern tenant farmers, Mike Disfarmer's Heber Springs, Arkansas portraits, and Richard Avedon's In the American West. An unsettling viewpoint of small town and country folks.
