Fair Culture: Images from Indiana Fairs
By Harold Lee Miller, photography and Gerald Waite, essay

In August 2005 Harold Lee Miller, a nationally known photographer with offices in Indianapolis and New York, started a series of photographs of 4-H participants at the poultry and rabbit barns of the Indiana State Fair. Miller expanded his project to include people and activity from fairs held in Jackson, Elkhart, Dubois, Delaware, Washington, Owen, Monroe, Knox, Jay, and Marion counties. In addition to Miller's more than one hundred photographs, "Fair Culture: Images from Indiana Fairs" includes an essay by Gerald Waite exploring the history of fairs from the Middle Ages to modern times, the grwoth of the institution in Indiana, and what fair culture says about those who participate in this annual ritual of midwestern life.
