Protest Photography, Chauncey Hare

Steidl Kasher

Chauncey Hare made highly detailed photographs of the interiors of working-class homes and workplaces across America in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This new book contains twice as many moving, disturbing and often surprising photographs as his two earlier books, Interior America (1977) and This Was Corporate America (1984). Hare's fast-paced introduction to the book highlights his life of protest, a life filled with unbelievable coincidences, learning, and pain.

In Protest Photographs, Hare describes his strong identification with the people whose homes he photographs and his adamant unwillingness to betray them by selling their photographs at any price. Hare describes his struggles to have his photographs, accompanied by explanatory text, accepted by the art world. Chauncey Hare does not define himself as a photographer, but instead an engineer, a family therapist and, above all, a protester.
