Traveling WV: Last Photographers
Nicholas County, W.Va. —
Photographer Mark Romano and writer Anne Johnson have produced and released the first in a series of photography books titled "Last Photographers". The first edition features Finley Taylor, a progressive but obscure photographer from Richwood, West Virginia, who photographed logging camps and incredibly intimate portraits from 1911-1949.
Co-author Anne Johnson, who's also a talented photographer, writes authentic, humorous, and touching anecdotes about Taylor's subjects. Mark Romano has published 15 regional and state books, including topics such as West Virginia coal mining, veterans, and local county histories.
