Follow photo essayist Sally Wiener Grotta as she travels the United States, spending time in various artisans’ workshops, capturing the stories of their life’s work and passion. Sally's natural down-to-earth shooting style helps artisans warm to her camera, developing personal relationships that allow her to share in intensely private and often poignant creative moments, as well as spontaneous expressions of joy and discovery. Her journals use photographs and stories to capture both the fascinating creative processes and the individual personalities of the craftspersons. (36 pages of photos and stories)
