    2. Read the review below from Owlseyes to see some of the haunting, mysterious and at the same time no-nonsense black and white photography of Carter, from East Texas, photographing his home area over the space of 25 years. 78 photographs of commonplace dogs and people and objects, with some magic about them nevertheless.
