Essay by Tim Davis, interview of author by publisher Bill Boling.
Past Time explores the political and cultural idealization of an America that never existed for many. It juxtaposes popular imagery of our past with photographs of contemporary life taken in locations such as Dixon, IL, the hometown of Ronald Reagan, and Mount Airy, NC, the hometown of Andy Griffith. Shown together, these elements portray how exclusionary misrepresentations of a mythological past-perfect, White America align with the current reality of iconic American towns, truly questioning the notion of “the good old days.”
