The American Barn


David Plowden has been involved in photography for more than sixty years. His images of mid-twentieth century life, especially his images of small towns, are particularly appealing. In this book, Plowden focuses on the symbolic nature of the barn.
The American BarnThere are few people in these images. As the artist himself says, think of this collection more as a visual poem than an exhaustive compendium or reference book.

What I found appealing (besides the technical photographic prowess) are the differences and similarities among barns from different regions of the United States. Barns from Montana, Indiana, Vermont, Illinois, the Dakotas, Ohio and more are included. Originally sold for $50, this beautifully printed book is now available as a remainder, only $19.95
