photo-eye Book Reviews: 509 by Pamela Pecchio

"Confronted with an essentially text-free book, I scour it for any clue to what I am dealing with. On the colophon page of Pamela Pecchio's 509, we learn that the photographs were taken in 2005 in Burlington, North Carolina. The book's title remains unexplained, and Pecchio's two epigraphs come from two radically different ends of the literary spectrum. First there is a fairly lengthy quote from Gaston Bachelard's The Poetics of Space, providing the project its intellectual bona fides. The next is pure hoakum courtesy of the poet Edgar A. Guest, "It takes a heap o' livin in a house t' make a home."" -- from Charles Dee Mitchell's review of 509 with photographs by Pamela Pecchio
