Good News from Nancy McCrary -- Mike Smith, SXSE
Nancy McCrary reports exciting news for Tennessee-based photographer Mike Smith, who has been awarded the Lowe Foundation Prize for 2011, in the amount of $50,000, for his portfolio Seeing Rural Appalachia, A Photographic Journal (see image above).
Also, news which probably makes Nancy even more pleased, is that the first print edition of SXSE is out and available now.
This issue contains work by Laura Noel, Jack Spencer, Shelby Lee Adams, Birney Imes, Michael West, and a whole slew of others familiar and unfamiliar to readers of this blog.
You can see a preview of it here. Those who have been waiting to become subscribers now have no excuse.
This is a beautiful piece of work, a tribute to all the long hours and the love and the commitment to Southern photography that Nancy and her partners have put into this project.
Great work, y'all!
