"ancient village". There’re some stupid names around here, but I don’t think that’s one of them.

source say this is polperro, where i have been, and where i suspect you have been, and “ancient village” is a dumb thing to call it.

Chiiori House in Iya Valley, Tokushima Japan|篪庵  chiiori.org
From Wiki:  “Chiiori (篪庵, House of the Flute) is the name of an Edo period minka farmhouse in the Iya Valley, western Tokushima, Japan. Purchased by Alex Kerr in the 1970s, the house is now home to staff members of Chiiori Trust, a non-profit organization based in Iya Valley that is working toward solutions to the problems surrounding depopulation in rural Japan.
From 1997 to 2007, Kerr shared ownership of Chiiori with Mason Florence. However, in summer of 2007, Kerr bought back Florence’s share and has since managed the house along with volunteers and Chiiori Trust staff.”

Zachary Norman - The Ballad of Tom Dooley (2009-11)

Artist’s statement:

The Ballad of Tom Dooley, popularized by The Kingston Trio’s 1958 recording, is a ballad that describes the 1866 murder of Laura Foster by Tom Dula (Dooley).

Tom Dula was tried and hanged for the murder but it is widely believed, especially by residents of the area where the murder occurred, that Tom was innocent and that his lover, Anne Melton, was responsible for Laura’s death.

These photographs represent an attempt to understand the roots of this ballad and the effect it has had on nearby communities in Western North Carolina, namely Wilkesboro and North Wilkesboro, NC. 

My intent when beginning this project was to document artifacts and locations significant to the story behind the song; to give dimension and depth to an otherwise casually understood artifact of American culture.

The scope of the project gradually expanded to include my growing interest in the way and for what reasons a community claims its connection to a history as significant and popular as the one I was attempting to record. The photographs, in addition to providing depth to a well known folksong, represent an attempt to determine the role photography plays in the creation of history.”

Guan Dongtian - Mediation of the Past at Red Cliff, to the Tune of Nian Nu Jiao (in Rhyme of Peking Opera)

Written by 苏轼(宋)Su Shi (Song Dynasty)

大江东去,浪淘尽,千古风流人物。

故垒西边,人道是,三国周郎赤壁。

乱石崩雲,惊涛駭案,卷起千堆雪。

江山如画,一时多少豪杰!

遥想公瑾当年,小乔初嫁了,雄姿英发,羽扇纶巾,谈笑间,樯橹灰飞烟灭。

故国神游,多情应笑我,早生华发。人间如梦,一樽还酹江月。
