Sanders McNew Photographs in the South

Large format photographer Sanders McNew used to work in Manhattan but he's from Virginia and his wife is from North Carolina and they've recently moved to Boca Raton, Florida.

So I will claim him as a Southern photographer.Th e image above was made at his wife's home in Madison County, NC.

Sanders does exquisite B&W work. His work has been featured in View Camera Magazine. 

Sanders also has great skill in portraiture, able to capture remarkable nuances of expression in his subjects, most of whom are in situations that would make me feel very uncomfortable, on either side of the camera.

Sanders seems able to put everyone at ease.

There is a story about Sanders and his work on The Online Photographer blog.

He's done two books with Blurb, HERE. You can find more of Sanders' work on Flickr.
