The book (from the publisher’s web site): Right: Portraits of the Evangelical Ivy League
Right — Patrick Henry College is the higher education institution of choice among politically far-right young people aspiring to enter the conservative power elite. The explicit mission of PHC is to cultivate leaders to take American politics and culture back to God, through careers in politics and entertainment. Acclaimed photographer Jona Frank presents an honest, intimate, and eye-opening portrait of the school and its students. Frank’s photos eschew cultural politicking of the left or the right, allowing readers to draw their own conclusions about a school and a youth movement with the potential to produce many of tomorrow’s leaders.

“Frank, who has devoted much of her career as a photographer and filmmaker to documenting cultures of adolescence, began her series of portraits of PHC students after reading a story Rosin wrote about the college for the New Yorker in 2005.”
- American Gothic Redux, American Thinker
“Simply put, Ms. Franks uses her camera and staging to portray the students at PHC as tense, artificial, pasteboard figures that float like detached ghosts over the landscape.”
I hoped to find more reviews of the book, but these two articles were the only ones that were actual reviews. Perhaps once it is released, reviewers at more sites will comment.
Of the little I’ve seen, the photos from Right … appear to be the same style as Ms. Frank’s other works.
