Inspired by memory of a trip I made as a child in 1949 with my father and sister to visit his kin in the Ozarks, I wanted to return to an area which was quite formative in my growing up. Though I made contact with a distant aunt living in a small cabin in the hills, I never successfully made pictures of her or her family. I work better photographing people I really do not know.
