Author/Actors/Director/etc.: Harold Lee Miller
Publisher: Indiana Historical Society (2011, Jul 14th).
In August 2005 Harold Lee Miller, a nationally known photographer with offices in Indianapolis and New York, started a series of photographs of 4-H participants at the poultry and rabbit barns of the Indiana State Fair. Miller expanded his project to include people and activity from fairs held in Jackson, Elkhart, Dubois, Delaware, Washington, Owen, Monroe, Knox, Jay, and Marion counties. In addition to Miller s more than one hundred photographs, the book includes an essay by Gerald Waite exploring the history of fairs from the Middle Ages to modern times, the growth of the institution in Indiana, and what fair culture says about those who participate in this annual ritual of midwestern life. As Miller notes, The people in these images are special, in the way that all people are special. moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability
