Nashville-based photographer Tamara Reynolds (see images above and below) is off to a great chapter in her career development this year.
Work from Reynolds' Southern Route portfolio is featured in Kat Kiernan's Don't Take Pictures magazine, Issue # 8, now out. You can get a taste of Reynold's work here.
Writing for the magazine, Sarah Coleman says that "For Reynolds, the intimacy of the work is an all-important step to healing the South’s divisions.
"Before even beginning Southern Route, [Reynolds] started reading about the history of the region, coming to terms with her responsibility as a white, middle class woman. ”
Reynolds also has images in the most recent issue of the Oxford American, as part of a story about a very Southern subject -- murder and the military.
Go here for Reynolds' photographs of Oak Grove, Kentucky and for Nick Tabor's account of "what an unsolved double murder in Kentucky reveals about America’s military-industrial complex."
All this, and it's only March -- who knows what the rest of the year will bring?
Whatever happens, we will report it to you on The Southern Photographer.
