    Literature
    Verene, Chris Verene, Twin Palms, 2000, unpaginated.

    Three generations of Chris Verene's family have lived in the declining midwestern town of Galesburg, Illinois, and both family and town have been central to his vividly-described work since he began taking photographs in his teens. In 1998, The New York Times observed: "... anthropological portraits, like Chris Verene's of a cousin at her wedding banquet in Illinois... Such portraits tell us less about individual people than about the worlds they inhabit, which is perhaps the main truth of most portraits."

    Other examples of Verene's work can be found later in the sale--lots 39-40, 79, 106, 116 and 126.
