James H. Evans Book Review – Cenizo Journal


The 2nd quarter issue of the Cenizo Journal has been distributed throughout the Trans Pecos of West Texas. Publisher/Editor, Dallas Baxter, had asked me to review the new book, Crazy from the Heat: a Chronicle of Twenty Years in the Big Bend. This is the second book of fabulous photographic images by James H. Evans. The foreword is graced by eloquent, versatile writer, Rebecca Solnit. To prepare for the review, I pulled photographic books out of storage and refreshed my feelings for a few my favorite photographers: Anne Noggle and Rosamond Wolff Purcell. I’ve been in awe of Evans’s work for 20 years, and it was an honor to be immersed in his images. The book will be available May 11, 2011.
