From the publisher: "Through a distinguished photographic, cinematic, and academic career spanning nearly half a century, Jerome Liebling has shown us what filmmaker Ken Burns (a former Liebling student) calls 'the drama that exists not in Hollywood and the imagination, but in the myriad heroic acts of merely being on this planet.' Liebling's images are startlingly unadorned, sometimes ironically witty depictions of people, animals, and environments, all of which refuse to surrender to time or circumstance without a fight. Liebling captures this ordinary valor with a compassion devoid of sentimentality, judgment, or manipulation." A fine overview of Liebling's photography and film work.
