Late Harvest by Forest McMullin

$11,761

As vast as it is varied, the American South has a quality of light found nowhere else. Illuminating unique qualities of its structures, landscapes and people, to fully understand the South requires revisiting it and repeated documentation of the region. 

Beginning in late Fall 2016 and returning a year later, photographer Forest McMullin spent weeks on the road traveling through the rural South. Late Harvest documents McMullin's journey through an often unnoticed part of the United States presenting nuanced conclusions that inform preconceived notions about the singular identity of the region.

McMullin stayed away from large highways and wandered wherever chance and whim took him. He relied on paper maps, not GPS, and chose the roads he drove based on the width of the line - none too wide - and towns based on the size of font - none too large. He ended up in places like Quitman, Georgia, Hickory Flat, Alabama, Alligator, Mississippi, Blackville, South Carolina, and Vidalia, Louisiana. The people were welcoming, kind, and open and enjoyed his interest in them; they were usually happy to be photographed. They told him about their lives but rarely discussed politics

The landscape spaces and structural surfaces shared visual powers emblematic of the region. Often past their prime, the colors and textures told stories as rich and varied as those of the men and women who sat for portraits.

Chronicling their stories and spaces, Late Harvest juxtaposes images and texts to suggest complex relationships and reveals a detailed picture of a region and the people who make it unique.
