Description
Outwardly conforming to the conventions of the Mennonite sect, Depression-era homemaker Ruth Hershey was a devoted photographer throughout her long life. More than 50 of Hershey's black and white photographs are seen here, portraying her family and the modest agricultural tradition to which they belonged, revealing a people at home in their world, regarding the camera's eye with curiosity, dignity, and bemusement. The text—by the creator of the Fix-It and Forget-It recipe cards—provides a look at Mennonite life in the early to mid-20th century and recounts the quiet career and unexpected legacy of Ruth Hershey.
