The South and Southern Photography -- News, Reviews, Conversations

Kael Alford's new book Bottom of 'da Boot: Photographs by Kael Alford (Fall Line Press, 2012) is reviewed (very favorably) by Daniel W Coburn in the latest issue (# 43)  of Fraction Magazine.

Roger May talks about the work of Shelby Lee Adams on his blog Walk Your Camera, here. 

Jennifer Schwartz' flash photography show in a barbershop -- with photographs by Heidi Lender -- took place last week in NYC, and you can read a full report on Jennifer Schwartz' blog here. I missed the show, but Adam Isler was there and reports on his oBLOGago blog, here. 

Sally Mann's new show at the Edwynn Houk Gallery is reviewed in Le Journal de la Photogaphie, DLK Collection, Time Out NY, and The New Yorker.

There is an interesting conversation going on today in the NY Times under the heading The South's Enduring Conservatism. The piece includes comments by a panel of 7 Southern historians, legal scholars, and students of politics; responses to their brief but thoughtful essays are, as of this writing up to 122 and growing.
