Reviews

"In January 1950, "Life "magazine photographer W. Eugene Smith came to Wales and took one of his great pictures--one of the great pictures of twentieth-century photojournalism. Paul Cabuts uses this event as the starting point for a terrific and meticulously researched journey of discovery about our photographic culture. The story he tells is essential reading not just for those of us who enjoy photographs, but for all who are interested in Welsh culture and its dissemination around the world."--Daniel Meadows, Cardiff University In January 1950, "Life "magazine photographer W.

Eugene Smith as a pivot, Paul Cabots constructs a panoramic history of photography in south Wales. His Wales is a cosmopolitan site accommodating natives, immigrants, and visitors alike. Cabuts is particularly strong in his analysis of how photographs can both freeze a historical moment and set it in motion. This book is an important contribution to photographic literature at a time when the relationship among local, national, and international contexts has become a contested topic in politics and art." --Ray Klimek, Ohio University Using W.
