Book Description

4 April 2008
These elegant and evocative photographs portray the oldest continuously farmed county in New York as it was and as it is today.Abandoned countryside and discarded buildings stand as silent memorials to the once-prosperous farming community of Schoharie County, New York. With a unique eye for the aesthetics of age, acclaimed photographers Steve Gross and Susan Daley honour this beautiful, troubled landscape in a collection of more than one hundred black-and-white photographs. Their work pays respect to a legacy both precarious and perpetual, dotted with crumbling houses and barns, fallow fields and overrun woods.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful nostalgic book of photographs 18 Sep 2008
By Thomas C. Clack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Fantastic book about the forgotten corners of the Catskills. Beautiful black and white photographs, made with a love and respect for the years gone by.Nostalgic and sad, but also fascinating that even neglect keeps these places harmonious and beautiful in their original design.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time marches on, but some cling to the past 7 Jun 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Time marches on, but some cling to the past. "Time Wearing Out Memory: Schoharie County" is a look through countless black and white photographs through the history of a small rural county in the state of New York. The poignant photos serve as reminders to the American past and an inspiration for the future of the American dream, making "Time Wearing Out Memory: Schoharie County" a highly recommended addition to community library photography collections and anyone seeking a poignant coffee table book.

Terrific--and well reproduced--large format photographs, of a time and place in America, all too quickly passing out of sight; a beautiful book, indeed.
