An exhibition catalogue of the author's photographs of families, young men, and elderly couples includes poetry, songs, and short stories
The book shows Weber's black-and-white photos that combines a rough, warts-and-all effect and the firm smoothness of his preferred subjects, young men. It also features many movie-and pop-star portraits; a color essay on Weber's old rancher-neighbor in Montana; montages of images culled directly from televised criminal trials; travelogues of Vietnam, South Africa, and Mississippi; portraits from a Boy Scout jamboree; and some amusing male nudes and seminudes.
