This book draws from the major photographic themes that preoccupied Larry Sultan over his life span. By many accounts he was a photographer whose teaching and personal project has directly influenced a generation of photographers. His last project, a fictional narrative about migrant workers in Northern California, is infused with a wonderful mix of an air of reality with a subtle undercurrent of melancholy. It would have been very interesting to see how Sultan’s next major theme might have developed.
