All You Can Lose is Your Heart

KayLynn Deveney’s photographs explore »storybook ranch-style« homes built throughout the American Southwest in the 1950s and ‘60s, when developers applied fairytale-style aesthetics to ranch house exteriors. This book, the first time these houses are the subject of a published photographic work, highlights personalized details outside the home resulting in photographs that reach beyond description to become metaphorical family portraits of those living inside. It tells us about a fading vision of the American dream, the last indications of a zeitgeist that encouraged Americans to aspire to an idealized vision of family and home.

When Albert Hastings was 85 years old, photographer KayLynn Deveney moved near his small flat in Wales. KayLynn took notice of the small rituals and routines - gardening, laundry, grocery shopping - that made up Bert's life. A friendship slowly developed as KayLynn began photographing parts of Bert's day. The two began a simple yet effective method of storytelling - with KayLynn's images and Bert's handwritten text - that evolved into The Day-to-Day Life of Albert Hastings, a poignant and profoundchronicle of aging, living alone, and the small joys that make up our daily lives. Containing 78 annotated photographs along with poems written by Bert, his clock drawings, and personal family photographs, The Day-to-Day Life of Albert Hastings gives the reader a glimpse into one man's life; we can only imagine what stories are left untold.

The first edition of The Day-to-Day Life of Albert Hastings, published by Princeton Architectural Press, has now sold out. Used copies and a few new copies of The Day-to-Day Life of Albert Hastings are available at Amazon's marketplace.
