“State Fair”

State Fair
“Arthur Grace’s State Fair is an affectionate, skillful, and keen observation of a quirky phase of our human comedy. In deceptively casual black-and-white photographs totally absent of attitude and theatrics, his instant observation quickly cuts to the chase, presenting visuals with nothing superfluous and nothing left out. Let us thank our lucky stars that Grace has taken the time time and energy to examine and bring us something of our american culture that is original, unique, and essentially uncorrupted.”

-Elliott Erwitt (from the dust jacket of State Fair)
