Deaf Maggie Lee Sayre.
Photographs of a River Life.


Photographs by Maggie Lee Sayre. Text by Tom Rankin.
University Press of Mississippi, Jackson, 1995. Unpaged,

Maggie Lee Sayre lived fifty-one years of her life on a river houseboat with her family in Kentucky and Tennessee. Born deaf, she started taking photographs of her family and visitors to the houseboat as a means of communication with the hearing world. When she began to arrange the photographs in albums and write captions for them, it was clear that her documentary of river life was also a unique visual autobiography. Photographs enabled Sayre to begin a dialogue with the world for the first time, and this book provides a look into her extraordinary expression.
