A Family Named Spot (2006)
Photographs by Burk Uzzle
Preface by Charlie Rose with a short story by Allan Gurganus
Publisher: Five Ties Publishing
The first book in a decade by former LIFE and Magnum photographer Burk Uzzle, A Family Named Spot gathers 77 images taken largely on Uzzle's frequent travels through his native South. Marvels of light and composition in the best tradition of black-and-white photography, these photographs confirm Uzzle's reputation as one of the wittiest and most incisive observers of American life.
"Like Twain, Uzzle observes the conventional life...with witty irreverence and a particularly Southern sense of the preposterous." — Martha Chahroudi
