Up the Creek

While it may be true that a picture never lies, it is equally true that a picture is worth a thousand words, words that often contradict each other in their meanings.

Hell With the Lid Taken Off

For more than a century, Pittsburgh has existed in the shadow of its own industrial-age narrative. Like much of Appalachia, Pittsburgh is a place dogged by stereotypes and assumptions.

Looking Without Fear

Today, a greater danger lies in over-romanticizing Appalachia than showing photographs that offend or might possibly offend.

EYES ON THE SOUTH: Easton Selby Thumbnail


Spanning over 6,000 square miles, the alluvial plain that is the Mississippi Delta birthed the rhythmic backbone of the American South—the Mississippi Delta Blues. It was born from a mergence of black and white cultures and speaks to the hardships of Southern life. From the hellhounds to the heat, the imagery that this music projects is as dense as the soil that haunts its farmland. But what is it about the landscape that drives this music? Historically, when people think or talk about the blues genre the focus is primarily on the individual musician; very rarely is the discussion about the influence. Bluesland is a series of photographs that investigates the often neglected elements of the Mississippi Delta Blues—locations, people, landscape–that continually influence this music.
