Of the South Statement 

The rural South is a place still haunted and oppressed by segregation. It is a place where, often times, African Americans are viewed as dangerous or pitiful. As an outsider, I am interested in what it looks like to be an African American male living in the same geographic location as myself. This series of photographs is my acknowledgement and appreciation of a culture of which I am not a part of, but wish to better understand.
