Mr. Bristol's Barn

With Excerpts From Mr. Blinn's Diary

Book - 1997
Rate this:
Offering a sense of rural life at the time of the American Civil War, this book combines photographs of a 19th-century barn in New York State with extracts from a farmer's diary of the period. The barn, which was owned by one Abel Bristol, is still standing, and John Szarkowski's photographs aim to show it to have a simple dignity of its own, and to be a vestige of a time when elaborate works of hand labour were so commonplace as to be taken for granted. Interwoven with the photographs are extracts from the diary of Bristol's neighbour, Philo Blinn, which record the Blinn family's daily lives.
