Wisdom of the Plain Folk
From an Amazon Review
The book is a collection of stunningly beautiful photographs of this area and collections and excerpts of sayings, proverbs and songs used as worship. The color photographs are plain themselves, like the people they chronicle, but contain a profundity that is difficult to translate into words. For example, I'm looking at a photograph, probably taken near dusk or just after sunrise, of a windmill against a darkening sky. There is a tree next to the windmill, and it's branches are bare. Puffy, dissolving cumulus clouds are lazing their way across the photo, and the general effect is one of immense calm. It's the very sort of photo that, despite the sparse content, makes me want to look at it, drink it in, for hours.
