Artist: Ty White

Project: Sippi

Description: Ty White covers a lot of ground in Sippi, an ongoing series of scenes spanning the Mississippi Delta, a region whose backroads he knows well. In vignettes of the state’s unique “relics, local characters, and open landscapes,” White brings clarity and visibility to what is often isolated and unseen. While he understands the poverty and difficulty that run through the Delta, it emerges in his photographs as a place of resilience and beauty.
