NO PERFECT HEROES Overview
NO PERFECT HEROES: PHOTOGRAPHING GRANT is a contemporary photographic tribute by Charles H. Traub to Ulysses S. Grant’s legacy. A singular synergism of art, history, image, sound and interactivity offering a sensory experience into a remarkable man’s story, and his immeasurable role in saving the Union. The issues confronted by Grant, in his deeds and writings, offer fresh insight for a country still divided politically.
Foreword by Ulysses Grant Dietz | Preface by Fred Ritchin | Readings by Edoardo Ballerini
One hundred and fifty years after the death of Ulysses S. Grant history has begun to vindicate this great, yet often maligned, general. A humble man of strikinginsight, Grant is finally appreciated for the steadfast leader and visionary President that he was.
Charles H. Traub’s compelling and haunting photographs capture, metaphorically, the essence of those places made great by Grant’s indomitable spirit. Traub traveled throughout the United States photographing the major sites, homesteads and memorials marked by Grant’s life—from his childhood in Ohio to Grant’s final days in New York.
INTERLOCUTORPRESS is pleased to release this ebook, that allows a unique personal experience for the viewer- a responsive exchange between image and text. The experience is heightened by the voice of the talented Edoardo Ballerini, who brings Grant alive, reading excerpts from his Personal Memoirs. Grant’s writings are considered one of the great pieces of American non-fiction literature.
Charles H. Traub has been a photographer for almost 50 years; his work is widely exhibited internationally. He is founder and chair of the MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department at the School of Visual Arts, and is the president of the Aaron Siskind Foundation.
