As High Museum of Art Curator of Photography Brett Abbott states in his cogent introductory essay accompanying the book, Grace’s study “represents the yin and yang of America… In Grace’s America, the ordinary meets the absurd, veneration and irreverence commingle in unexpected and delightfully humorous ways, a lighthearted joie de vivre soothes a violent vein, and the sanctity of the individual competes with our continual drive toward collective direction. Indeed, what is perhaps so prescient about Grace’s condensation of the past is how much it resembles the basic structure of our present.”
