Seventy women photographers with Southern connections are featured in a new show called Shootin' Southern: Women Past and Present at the Mobile Museum of Art. It opened on April 30th and is up until July 18th, 2010. This large, rich show includes a great host of fine work, including the image shown above, Caroline Davis' And Since I Could Not See For The Glory Of That Light, Being Led By The Hand Of Those Who Were With Me (1999).
This show features work by older photographers including Eudora Welty, Rosalie McKenna, Frances Johnston, and Lois Slosson Sundberg, as well as by a host of contemporary shooters, including Sally Mann, Laura Noel, Debbie Fleming Caffrey, Sheila Pree-Bright, Deborah Luster, and Pam Moxley. You can find a complete list of the photographers included in this show here.
This show is definitely worth checking out. My thanks to participant Laura Noel for passing this information along.
