From the publisher: "Both Polly Joseph and Debbie Fleming Caffery are women of Southern Louisiana and together they formed an intimate, isolated bond initiated by photography and matured into an unlikely friendship. The details of Polly's life, present and past, became a collection of fables Caffery drank in like the dust-filled air and the deep, articulated shadows that surrounded them. Caffery's photographs transmit mystery and truth through the story, body, and home of Polly: they are a collective portrait of unspeakable power."
