The Southern Photographer takes a Sabbatical

The Southern Photographer (aka John N. Wall, see image above) is taking a sabbatical. Professional work demands are crowding in while the subject of Southern photography continues to expand in scope and variety. 

As some of you know, I have a day job as a professor of English literature at NC State University.  

We've been funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities to recreate through digital modeling the look and sound of worship in St Paul's Cathedral in London in the 1620's. We are recreating a part of London that was totally destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666.

Here is a preliminary example of the kind of thing we are trying to produce. 

You can see more if you go here:

Our grant runs out at the end of this year, and there is till much to do. I'm not doing anyone any favors by trying to fit in work on this blog along with trying to meet deadlines with this multi-year project.

So, after 8 years, 833 blog entries, 163 loyal followers, and 530,676 pageviews, we take a pause.

  4. Betty Press just alerted me to this bit of news, John. This blog, and your voice, will be so missed. I've often felt very inadequate (I know, I know-- that's what you're here for!)-- seeing you do all this, while knowing you also have a 'real' job. How does John do it all? Congratulations on the NEH grant, though, and the continued NCSU work on this project. And I really really hope this is just a 'pause,' and you'll return. Always so thorough, so well-written, and such a source on all things photographic in the South. Thank you, John, and for all you've done for me- promoting my work- these last eight years. Enjoy your sabbatical, and that's what I'm gonna consider it-- merely a sabbatical!! I guess I'll see you at the hardware store . . .
