This collection of 100 haunting, sometimes humorous, but always deeply honest black-and-white photographs reveals the 42-year career of a master photographer and photojournalist. Ken Elkins retired as chief photographer of the Anniston Star in 2000, and this selection of his work demonstrates his brilliant eye for finding and capturing images of rural southern lives and landscapes in all their difficulty, candor, and humor. These are unadorned images of a timeless landscape and proud resourceful people, who know well their neighbors, honor their past, and face the tests of daily life with wit and a stoic sense of endurance. “The old scenes are gone, or going . . . and the people are different, less likely to be in overalls and print dresses, less likely to a sliver of tobacco off a sweet-smelling plug of Brown Mule. So we try to remember, imperfectly. But not Elkins. . . . He and his camera have found value in their lives that so many others--a world full--were unable to see. I have worked beside the very, very best. But I only know one picture taker. When he turns his lens on the mostly rural, mostly poor pockets of his native Alabama, something beautiful happens. He draws out the dignity and loveliness that is in these people, and spreads it out for the rest of the world to see.” --Rick Bragg, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of All over but the Shoutin', Somebody Told Me, Ava's Man, and The Most They Ever Had, in his foreword to Picture Taker

I grew up in Calhoun Co. Alabama so this book is like looking into my childhood. I am 46 years old so a lot of these pictures remind me of when I was a kid. I LOVE IT! I highly recommend this book if you knew anything about Ken Elkins. I have been reading the Anniston Star (the local paper in Calhoun Co.) all my life so I was very familiar with his photography. A good book for kids to see and learn about the heritage and culture of Alabama from years gone by.

My husband and I enjoy Rick Bragg's writing so much that I buy almost anything that he writes. Then I read it to my husband. The pictures in this book were an additional bonus. I knew they would be good but I was surprised by how much of an impact they would have. Each photograph required study as each one told a different story, some made us smile and some hurt our hearts. This book has been responsible for creating journeys into a different life and culture for our entire family.

Ken Elkins photographs have inspired many short stories and art works. They are timeless in the fact that the emotion and sentiment is captured in a era of an old, small Southern town, USA.

Ken Elkins captures the essence of rural small town Alabama in his beautiful photographs taken while he served as the staff photographer for the Anniston Star. This book is a treasure!

Beautiful book. This man takes pictures like Rick Bragg (forword) writes. Each photograph is a story. Great work!
