image from the documentaryExciting news from Candacy Taylor. Cornell University Press is publishing “Counter Culture: The American Coffee Shop Waitress,” a book about career waitresses she has been working on. The book will contain about 90 photographs and 50,000 words and be released in spring 2009. Taylor has spent six years traveling the country, photographing and interviewing waitresses, and the book will be based on that work.

Also, look for Taylor’s work at the Santa Barbara Arts Commission Gallery this November. She has been commissioned to photograph waitresses in Santa Barbara for a show to be mounted in November that she will also curate. Taylor is an alum of the California Story Fund, having directed a project on career waitresses in San Francisco in 2005.
