About the Book
This collection of 180 Black and White portraits were taken in
June 2004 in Putney, VT as part of an 8,000 mile cross country
trip to document various communities. A year later an outdoor installation of all the portraits was installed in a central location in
the town. The book also includes documentation of the site installation.
Christopher Irion is an advertising photographer living in San Francisco. For the last six years he has been making trips around the country, photographing communities using a portable photographic studio and creating public installations of the collected portraits.
