County Fair Portraits
By Mikkel Aaland.
We are totally obsessed with this book. In fact, we have a copy in our personal collezione! Doing the rounds of the county fair circuit, circa 1971-1980, Mikkel Aaland recorded chicano couples, families, bikies, cholas, old women, kids and even an Isaac Hayes look-alike… people from rural and small town America as they lined up to get their picture taken. Funny, sad, weird and sometimes uncomfortable, these portraits make you really wonder about the lives of other people. It’s a book that always draws you back.
