Nacogdoches Now and Then

Photography by Christopher Talbot
Introduction by David Lewis

Nacogdoches Now and Then documents a project taken on by Christopher Talbot and his photography class from Stephen F. Austin State University. The project involved researching historic photographs of Nacogdoches and revisiting the precise locations. The project had two objectives: 1) make art out of history, and 2) bring history alive through art. Using source photographs dating from 1882 to the mid-20th Century, Talbot and his students had to become researchers and explorers in order to realize their objectives. Readers of this book are treated to a blending of Nacogdoches’ past with present, and, using it as a model, may continue the tradition by juxtaposing their own photographic documents against time’s transformation.

CHRISTOPHER TALBOT is an Assistant Professor of Art at Stephen F. Austin State University. He holds a BFA degree in Photography from Brigham Young University and a MFA in Photography and Digital Media from the University of Houston. DAVID A. LEWIS holds a BA in Art and Philosophy (Cum Laude) from the University of Southern Indiana, and both MA and Ph.D. degrees in Art History from Indiana University, Bloomington. He is an Associate Professor of Art History at Stephen F. Austin State University.
