Anderson Scott -- Whistling Dixie Update
Atlanta-based photographer Anderson Scott continues to get good reviews and wide notice for his book Whistling Dixie.
His work has also now been the subject of feature stories in Le Journal de la Photographie, Slate, and Wired.
The comments being added to the Wired piece are themselves worth a read. They provide clear proof that the history of the Civil War is not yet over.
Mike Smith, author of You’re Not From Around Here: Photographs from East Tennessee, gets to what makes this book so haunting and so powerful.
He writes,“Anderson Scott repeatedly demonstrates that he knows more than what the script offers and he provides insight to the viewer on a much larger scale than just what the events suggest.
"The authority of the photographer’s vision—his personal point of view—convince us that he got it right.”
