Incl. biographies. - "A major traveling exhibition, accompanied by a finely produced book, that reproduces images and writings by fifty of America's leading photographers and writers. The exhibition and book are the result of a five-year project known as the National Millennium Survey. The survey commissioned thirty-five prominent photographers and fifteen nationally recognized writers. Among the fifty artists are a large number of Guggenheim fellows, MacArthur fellows, and Pulitzer Prize winners. The exhibition is devoted to reflections of American life and culture through the vision and interpretation of contemporary photographers and writers. The works in the book and exhibition were produced over the period 1995-2000. The photographic works include documentary series, installations, visual essays, and individual images. The writing includes essays, poetry, and narrative. Among the cultural touchstones represented by the artists are diversity, mobility, family, forces of tradition, ritual, the search for community, immigration, consumerism, the aged, and spiritual continuity."
