The home of the surrealists : Lee Miller, Roland Penrose, and their circle at Farley Farm by Antony Penrose( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Specially commissioned photographs by Alan MacWeeney are presented alongside photographs by Lee Miller, telling the story of Farley Farm and its inhabitants over thirty-five years. Antony Penrose offers personal anecdotes of the dramas and outrageous surprises that were part of everyday life growing up in an unconventional milieu and enjoying visits from some of the most flamboyant and famous artists of the day. The book also documents the internationally renowned collection of painting and sculpture that Miller and Penrose established in their home - in part composed of artistic mementos of their friends, like the tile in the kitchen by Picasso or the poem on the stairs by Eliard." "Blending great art with original photography and intimate recollection, this book provides a revealing firsthand account of a Surrealist artists' colony and the story of one of the most fascinating collections of modern art ever assembled."--BOOK JACKET

Irish Travellers, tinkers no more by Alen MacWeeney( Recording )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1965, Alen MacWeeney came upon an encampment of itinerants in a waste ground by the Cherry Orchard Fever Hospital outside Dublin. Then called tinkers and later formally styled Travellers by the Irish Government, they were living in beatup caravans, ramshackle sheds, and time-worn tents. MacWeeney was captivated by their independence, individuality, and endurance, despite their bleak circumstances." "Already noted in the United States as a photographer of great sensitivity, MacWeeney became accepted by the Travellers and began to photograph them. In a moving essay in the book, he writes: "Theirs was a bigger way of life than mine, with its daily struggle for survival, compared to my struggle to find images symbolic and representative of that life." Over five years, he spent countless evenings in the Travellers' caravans and by their campfires, drinking tea and listening to their tales, songs, and music."--Jacket
