The World from My Front Porch.
Photographs by Larry Towell.
Selected from twenty years' worth of photographs by award-winning Magnum member Larry Towell, The World From My Front Porch is a collection of photographs of family life in northern Ontario-a romantic and beautiful rural idyll. This photo-essay is at the heart of a book that also, in separate sections of albums and found objects, explores both the history of Towell's front porch and his outside journeys into the war zones of the world. Themes of land and belonging are woven together in an extensive autobiographical essay. The book is dramatically designed in the manner of an Edwardian album and accompanies retrospective exhibition touring the United States and Canada.
