Amanda Greene Comes Home
Athens, GA--based photographer Amanda Greene is now featured on the Bitter Southerner blog with work made since her return to the South after seventeen years in California.
Greene grew up in Georgia, then found her way to California for her education as a photographer and for the early stages of her career.
Her work shows us the kinds of things that look distinctive to someone who has been away. Here, the ordinary becomes compelling, the familiar becomes strange.
Greene also has a great eye for light, especially that Southern light that is strong and pervasive and difficult to photograph.
We noticed Greene's work before, when she was featured on Jeff Rich's Eyes on the South, back in July of 2013.
Good to have this reminder of her fine work from the Bitter Southerner.
