Book Description Paul Shambroom is a Minneapolis-based photo artist who, over a period of four years, attended hundreds of town council meetings across the United States. Photographing the participants with a large-format panoramic camera, as staged tableaux, his dramatic pictures resemble epic history paintings they describe the humble practice of local government on a grand scale. A celebration of small-town America, these accessible pictures have already been lauded by the critics ("Extraordinary"-the New York Times , "Powerful"- ArtForum , "Marvelous and beautiful"- Art Review ) and collected by institutions such as the Whitney and MOMA New York. The minutes of each featured meeting are reproduced in full (runs over 40 pages at the back of the book and printed on Bible paper).
