The New South and Modern Photography

May 9, 2022 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM



What defines the “New South,” a term that means something different depending on who you ask? And how are the concerns, appetites, and lifestyles of the “New South” reflected in the work of its emerging photographers? Inspired by the trailblazing color photography of William Eggleston, join Mark Long, co-curator of the landmark 2018 Halsey Institute Exhibition Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South, as we consider contemporary photographic works and perspectives of photographers included in Southbound.
