    I've been reading Janet Malcolm's book of essays "Diana and Nikon". The best - well, my favourite - essay "Slouching Towards Bethlehem, PA" starts with Walker Evans and Robert Frank, and then concludes with a discussion of Chauncey Hare's book "Interior America".

    Anyone have any information about Hare? Google got me nowhere, and book searches just turn up the books mentioned in Malcolm's article, and they're out of print. I'd like to know more, and particularly I'd like to see some of his photographs.

    Thanks severian

    It looks as if there is not much to see of Chauncey Hare's work, beyond what he originally published. Given the strength of the welcome that received, it seems a shame.

    That said, I'll reserve judgement until I actually get my hands on a book and see for myself.
