Publisher's Description

Selected as a Book of the Week by Melissa Catanese

Ron Jude’s Fires seamlessly weaves together the disparate strands of his three-part look at his childhood home of Central Idaho. Pulling equal parts from Alpine Star (2006), emmett (2010), and Lick Creek Line (2012), Jude fleshes out the consistent tone and crossover between what appear on the surface to be three incongruent projects. An aging fur trapper, a young man on the threshold of adulthood in the early 1980s, and an entire community (as represented by a weekly newspaper), converge through the repeating motif of a woodland landscape. Published in conjunction with the exhibition Backstory at the Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College in Chicago, Fires functions not as a catalog, but as a self-contained piece that exploits photography’s tendency to continuously tip away from empiricism into the realm of the prose poem.
