Nancy Newberry wanted to make pictures of Texas that went past the facile folklore of the homestead, past the stereotypes of tumbleweeds and ten-gallon hats. Put in decidedly nonfolksy terms, she was fascinated by disjunctive cognition, that phenomenon in a dream where you simultaneously recognize something is and isn’t. In other words, something familiar — but just shy of normal.“It’s about a psychological space that connects you to a place,” said Ms. Newberry, who was born in San Antonio and now splits her time between Dallas and Marfa. “And in my case, this is where I come from, from Texas.”
I live in Texas and it is as dreamy as you want it to be.
good to know! 😉
I have seen Nancy’s work hanging at the Houston Center for Photography.
Mi piace! Un saluto. Marisa
Thank you, Marisa!
That’s not what my back yard looks like, but then again I just spent four hours sodding it. That little girl looks like an organza pinata. Interesting idea.
I wasn’t thinking organza piñata but I’ll take another look. 😉
Is THIS Nancy Newberry in the picture herself?
