Since the first exhibition of Disfarmer's work in 1976, the art world has wondered about the reclusive portraitist who--like Atget--made glass plate negatives long after easier methods had come to predominate the medium. But they have also wondered about the town he spent his life portraying. Toba Tucker, a documentary portraitist lived in Heber Springs for two years making formal portraits of the surviving subjects of Disfarmer's photographs. The result is a fascinating and beautiful study of small-town America's resilience and its changes.
