The first edition of the book Garzón from Pocitos Libros  and written by John R. Harris is a black and white documentary study of a small rural town in the midst of considerable changes. Located in the rural sierras near Uruguay's coastline, the city was once an important mill town for local farmers and a stopover between the mountainous interior provinces and the wealthier cities along the Atlantic Coast. When the railroad discontinued service to Garzón in the 1980's the village began a steady economic and population decline which is indicated by the book's tag line: "Garzón had about 2000 people then, now we are 200..."

In 2004, noted chef Francis Mallmann opened an exclusive 3-room inn and restaurant on the dusty corner of Garzón's main plaza. Land prices climbed as interest in the town grew and long-time residents were able to sell dilapidated houses to interested parties from outside Uruguay. The photos in Garzón were shot between 2005-2009 and record the people living and working in Garzón and the surrounding farms and quarries. With text in Spanish and English, the book is an attempt to document the town before any potential changes occured due to the opening of the restaurant and the change from a local farm-based economy to one based more on tourism.
