Small and self-contained, yet with ties to the larger world, "Weeping Mary" is a community in rural east Texas. The poetic mystery of its name, which local legend attributes to an African American woman called Mary who wept inconsolably over the loss of her land to a deceitful white man, drew photographer O. Rufus Lovett in 1994. Feeling a kinship with the people and rhythms of a small Soutern town like the one in which he grew up. In the decade since his first visit, he has created an impressive body of work that distills the essence of this unique, yet instinctively familiar community. ; B&W Photographs; Square 4to 9" - 11" tall; 164 pages; 31509; Signed by Illustrator
