In Search of Norman Rockwells America by Kevin Rivoli

In this unprecedented collection, photojournalist Kevin Rivoli proves that the idealistic, all-American views found in Norman Rockwells classic illustrations are, in fact, accurate and timeless portrayals of a nation that truly does exist. Some critics argue that Norman Rockwells images are overly sentimental, old-fashioned, and contrived. Yet it was always photojournalist Kevin Rivolis belief that the themes that make Rockwells illustrations so poignant -- patriotism, sports, faith, and family -- are also what make our country so great. Determined to dispel the critics claims against Rockwells prolific body of work, Rivoli set out with his camera to visit small towns across the nation and capture spontaneous Rockwell moments that celebrate the glory of ordinary, everyday life. In Search of Norman Rockwells Americapairs Rivolis photographs side by side with Norman Rockwells iconic paintings, demonstrating how Rockwells scenes were not just imagined on a canvas since they continue to sensitively reflect the American experience today. Each page of In Search of Norman Rockwells America is filled with inspiring quotes and anecdotes from those who have been touched by Rockwell, including Arnold Palmer, Dick Clark, Beau Bridges, Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, former president Jimmy Carter, and even the original subjects of Rockwells artwork. A must-have for photographers, artists, Rockwell enthusiasts, and those desiring to slow down and focus on whats really important in life -- embracing those special Rockwell moments.
