A native North Carolinian, I grew up in Reidsville, a small Piedmont town dominated by tobacco, textiles, and everyone knowing who “your people” are. And while I have lived many other places, nowhere rings truer to me than the South I know and remember. These images reflect that sense of place for me. They are from an ongoing series, which I began nearly 30 years ago, and continue to the present. This is just a selection from this series; with few exceptions, all were made throughout North Carolina. This series (originally called Southbound) was featured in Dodho Magazine, and you can read more about it here.
