Eudora Welty's Photographs, originally published in 1989, serves as the definitive book of the critically acclaimed writer's photographs. Her camera's viewfinder captured deep compassion and her artist's sensibilities. Photographs is a deeply felt documentation of 1930s Mississippi taken by a keenly observant photographer who showed the human side of her subjects. Also included in the book are pictures from Welty's travels to New York, New Orleans, South Carolina, Mexico, and Europe in the 1930s, '40s, and '50s.

The photographs in this edition are new digital scans of Welty's original negatives and authentic prints, restoring the images to their original glory. It also features sixteen additional images, several of which were selected by Welty for her 1936 photography exhibit in New York City and have never before been reproduced for publication, along with a resonant, new foreword by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and Mississippi native Natasha Trethewey.
Eudora Welty (1909-2001) is the author of many novels and story collections, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Optimist's Daughter, Losing Battles, The Ponder Heart, The Robber Bridegroom, and A Curtain of Green and Other Stories, as well as collections of her photographic work Country Churchyards and One Time, One Place: Mississippi in the Depression, both published by University Press of Mississippi.
