Sam Haskins first used his camera for reporting. He reported on beauty, on Five Girls (1962), how they looked and what they did. Then, he used his camera for telling stories, like the story of Cowboy Kate (1965), the wild, lolloping western girl who curved like wandering Rio Grande. And now, Sam Haskin’s camera is for making poetry, for telling us what we already know but cannot tell ourselves. These pictures of the hopeless longing of a lovely girl for the man who will never come are an ode to loneliness.
