Riassunto: This large format duotone photography book closely chronicles the workaday life of Florida's unsung and largely unseen Cracker cowboys. Their work is similar to their Western counterparts only in that they both work with cattle. Working in swamp and hammock, Cracker shows the behind the scenes love and sweat that these caretakers of the environment bring to their lifestyle. An art photography book as much as a pictoral essay, Cracker is for anyone who loves the cowboy life. It also shows that Florida is a lot more than beaches, Miami and DisneyWorld.
L'autore: Jon Kral grew up in the pinewoods shadow of some of Florida's most productive ranchland in Ft. Pierce. Cracker is the result of over ten years' worth of observing and working alongside these cattlemen and women. A senior photographer for the Miami Herald, Kral is a four-time Pulitzer nominee and winner of literally dozens of awards, including the prestigous Robert F. Kennedy Award for his shots of youth gangs in the South. The National Association of Hispanic Journalists gave him their highest award for his coverage of conditions in Venezuelan prisons, which resulted in one maximum security facility being closed and razed.
