Jeff Rich -- Eyes on the South


We all owe Jeff Rich a deep debt of gratitude for his ongoing Eyes on the South (EOTS) series of portfolios on the Oxford American website

Rich has a fine eye, an inquiring mind, and an adventurous spirit. He also has the commitment to keep bringing us new entries in his ongoing survey of the varieties and wonders of Southern photography.

Eyes on the South is a weekly post. 

How Rich keeps up his own work (see image above) AND fulfills his teaching duties at the University of Iowa AND also keeps meeting his commitment to having up a new EOTS entry every week is beyond me. 

I for one am deeply grateful.

You can keep up with this feature of the Oxford American by going here:

Rich says he finds most of the artists for EOTS by looking regularly at a bunch of different sources like Instagram and tumblr. 

But he's always open to looking at new work. Photographers who would like to submit work for Rich to consider for EOTS are invited to contact him at this email address:

Just to keep up, photographers featured on Eyes on the South since we last checked include the following:

Texas-based photographer Rachel Cox (see image above) and Hattiesburg, MS-based photographer Thomas Pearson (see image below).

Congratulations to these folks, and especially to Jeff Rich, who has brought their work, and the work of so many other fine Southern photographers to our attention.
