    DescriptionAn essay in the representation of politics, these large-format panoramic photographs of town council meetings across the United States are the result of four years of traveling by artist-photographer Paul Shambroom. Photographing civic meetings as staged tableaux, his pictures resemble epic history paintings, describing the humble practice of local government and the character of small town America on a grand scale. The images are accompanied by the minutes of each meeting--40,000 words reproduced on bible paper at the back of the book.

    Review quote
    '...Shambroom gives us a glimpse of the largely unseen machinery that quietly but persistently determines the way we live. ... In Shambroom's pictures, the simple, actual event is revealed as a marvellous and beautiful enactment of the highest democratic ideals of equality, dialogue and representation. They are pictures not just of rituals, but of the real-life practice of self and community empowerment.' Diane Mullin in ArtReview (October 2003)
