box set. Take Me to the Water
is a 96-page hardcover book which contains photographs from the collection of Jim Linderman, a scholar of 20th Century self-taught American art and a noted collector of outsider art, early American folk art, and daguerreotype photographs of even earlier American folk art portraits. Also included is a compact disc featuring rare, vintage songs and sermons recorded between 1924-1940 and an introductory essay by Luc Sante.
Whether you have ever actually experienced a baptism or not, whether you are a believer or not, these pictures and the music that accompanies them (from rare 78rpm records) transmit all the emotional information: the excitement and the serenity, the fellowship and the warmth, the wind and the water... --Luc Sante, from the Introduction
