Photographs by Debbie Fleming Caffery.
Twin Palms Publishers,
96 pp., 45 tritone illustrations, 11x11".
In 1990, the Smithsonian published a softbound monograph on a photographer born and raised in Louisiana by the name of Debbie Fleming Caffery. Her dark, haunting images of sugar cane workers nearly overpowered the book, creating a yearning by all who purchased it to see more. But no publications were forthcoming, and the book, Carry Me Home, became one of the most sought after out-of-print books on the market. More than ten years later, a gorgeous new volume finally arrives, equal to the task of providing a suitable space for Caffery's forceful imagery which vacillates between renderings of the ethereal and rumblings of the underworld. Light is the instrument; indelible portraits of shadows the result. A true masterpiece. The limited edition is signed, numbered and slipcased. The deluxe edition is signed/numbered and comes in a clamshell box with an original gelatin silver print. See the limited edition print and an interview with Caffery on p. 19 of the 2002 Holiday catalogue.
