ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Shellburne Thurber's photographic series "Home." On the surface it might appear as if "Home;' Boston-based artist Shellburne Thurber's series of large-scale color photographs of the interiors of vacant and neglected houses in North Carolina, follows in the tradition of documenting the shabby or abandoned that photographer Walker Evans unwittingly established for the South. One difference is Thurber's use of color, whereas much of the formal beauty of Evans' depression compositions derives from the power of black and white.
