"Lunsford is a wayfarer, a wanderer, camera-ready to capture what might appear around the next curve. He is writing with light, shadow, color, and form—creating a pixilated visual diary, a dispatch from the heart of Dixie."
— Richard McCabe, Curator of Photography, Ogden Museum of Southern Art

Essay by Richard McCabe
“All the Place You’ve Got explores notions of beauty, anxiety, and the passage of time while documenting the changing landscape along Alabama’s Corridor X. Begun nearly 50 years ago, the newly completed interstate project connects Birmingham to Memphis through a once-remote part of northwest Alabama populated by desolate towns and shuttered coal mines. The project expresses my search for meaning within a place where I am both inhabitant and outsider so I photograph as a means to understand who I am and where I come from while using my camera to make quiet, melancholic pictures that capture beauty in the marginalized and mundane. These southern gothic landscapes contrast the liminal, isolated spaces with verdured spaces full of lush, warm color and provide points from which to consider the complex economic, ecological, and social histories of place in flux.” —DL

Cattywampus Press is proud to publish the first photography monograph by Devin Lunsford—an emerging photographer whose breathtaking "golden hour" photos of the American South first captured our attention on Instagram. As as an independent, project based publisher we utilize crowdfunding tools like Kickstarter to presale the first edition runs of our publications.

Plus the books gets made and are distributed to folks who will cherish them forever.
- This campaign will end at the beginning of August.
- The money earned from this presale will be used to design, manufacture, and ship the books and extra rewards/incentives.
- Remaining revenues will be used to pay the photographer, the essayists, and publisher for their efforts and time spent crafting this publication.
- Fulfillment of orders will occur in late November to early December 2019.
- We ship internationally! Please contact us requesting a shipping fee for your country.
Risks and challenges
The only risk for Cattywampus Press is not raising enough money to produce the first edition print run of this book. Although unlikely, if this were to happen, our "backers" "pledges" will be canceled and no money will be withdrawn from your accounts. Once the campaign succeeds and funds are transferred from your account, you can expect regular updates on the status of manufacturing and shipping. If for any inconceivable reason we are unable to manufacture the books and rewards/incentives, we will promptly return your pledge money.
The main challenge is reaching enough people interested in possessing this original artist publication, That's why we need your help! Please share this campaign through your social media channels and by word of mouth.
