About this Piece

"I went down to Navasota with the folklorists Mack McCormick and Chris Strachwitz from Arhoolie Records. Mance had just spent a hard day working on highways near his home. He came home and started playing his guitar on the back porch. He told us how good he was, better than Lightnin'. He said, "Listen to Lightnin', everything starts out the same but mine are different." He entertained us into the night. " (Andy Hanson)

This image was included in the exhibition catalogue, “Andy Hanson: Another Side” (Photographic Archives Gallery, 2003).

About the Artist

Andy Hanson was best known as a noted and well-liked society photographer for the Dallas Times Herald from 1960-1991. He chronicled daily life in Dallas for over three decades. Ever-present at society functions and news worthy events, his trademark was his 35mm Leica range finder camera perched on a chest tripod that allowed him to juggle a hand-held flash with homemade bounce card and a notepad for taking names.

ARTIST STATEMENT
"I like to walk a lot. I like to ride with somebody else driving, it’s great. I like to be a passenger so I can see more. When I drive, I go the back ways. I don’t like to get on the freeways – I never know where to get off. The other day I was driving a guy to Mesquite. He said, “Turn right here.” I said, “Who’s driving? Whose car is this?” So we went the back way and saw some things he’d never seen before. When you get on the freeway you can’t see anything. There’s nothing to see anyway." (Andy Hanson)
