David Graham, Taking Liberties, 2001 $20.00
A colorful and joyous book of photographs documenting Americans' love of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. From folk artists in Maine to dentists in California, Graham documents the people who take their liberty seriously and who aren't afraid of expressing themselves. There's the hamburger stand on Lover's Lane in Dallas with a full size statue of Lenin, the roadside attractions of Route 66, and the exuberance of Hollywood. From sea to shining sea, Graham has embraced the efforts of those Americans we love.
