Notes:
The exhibition, "Heart and Hands," and this collection were derived from a project begun in 1996. "Traveling coast to coast, in an extensive two-year journey across the United States, ...Jake Jacobson and research collaborator Trisja Malisoff recorded the images, words, and music of over 300 contemporary musical instrument makers. Documenting the diversity of American music, Jacobson's photographs reveal a complex, living tradition-a heritage that draws upon Latin, Native American, European, African, and Asian music influences." (Quoted from "Update 1999-2000", SITES catalog.)
Summary:
Photographs of American musical instrument makers: 86 digital color prints from Jacobson's 35mm color transparencies. Also, a loose-leaf notebook inventory of the photographs, with titles and thumbnail images for identification (including a CD-ROM version of the illustrated list), and a copy of the compact disk sound recording, "Heart & Hands: Musical Instrument Makers of America; Music and Interviews Recorded Live; Taken from the Book..." (produced by Northlight).
