Text: Lara Shipley

Publisher: Overlapse

152 pages

Pictures: 104

Year: 2021

ISBN: 9781999446857

Price: 50

Comments: FIRST EDITION Trade Hardcover, 17 x 23 cm portrait. Section-sewn binding with cloth-covered spine; foil on printed paper cover + spine.

Dolezal and Shipley return to their home region of the Ozarks in the American Midwest, where locals persist in their search for a legendary floating orb of light that can only be seen from the Devil’s Promenade. It’s a lushly wooded road in an area where wanderers flock to seek possible redemption, or just to escape the boredom and darkness of ordinary rural life. Subtle but revealing portraits are mixed with archives and reinterpretations of mythical, folkloric tales. It’s a nuanced, mysterious and tender representation by photographers returning to the place where they grew up, but also reveals the current, stark realities of a remote place in America.
