Amanda Greene: Delivered

By  |  July 8, 2013

In Delivered, Amanda Greene explores the haunts of her Georgia childhood—the places, and a culture, that didn’t change much while she was living in California for almost two decades. Greene writes,

Rabun County is in the northeast corner of Georgia. Famed for being the setting of Deliverance, this is where I was born. I revisited the small local grocery market and the open air flea market, among other places. I found comfort in things being unchanged: the colors, the people. Groceries from the market were brought to my ailing grandmother’s home when she wasn’t able to get out of the house. People here enjoy what is simple, seasonal, personal.

Amanda Greene grew up in Atlanta and then traveled west to attend Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. She lived in the Los Angeles area for seventeen years before returning home in 2010. Since then, Greene’s work has developed into a sort of tribute to the things she loves about her home state; small town grocery stores, produce stands, bluegrasss music, and roadside flea markets are some sources of visual delight for her. Amanda lives in the woods with her beloved dog, Rudy. To see more of her work visit her website.
