Hands in Harmony
Tim Barnwell’s photography has documented the people of Appalachia for over three decades, capturing a way of life and work that has changed little in the past hundred years. Now with sensitivity and grace he honors the music and handcrafts of the region, showing musicians and craftspeople in their homes, studios, shops, or in concert.
As in his previous books, striking duotone portraits of these artisans and musicians are accompanied by biographies and oral histories. Here we become acquainted with banjo players, wood carvers, basket weavers, fiddlers, blacksmiths, and many more. A music CD with twenty songs from musicians featured in the book rounds out this rich collection.
