 "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

Photographs by Devin Lunsford | Instagram 

70 pages | 10 x 12.25 inches | 27 color photographs | Forthcoming December 2019

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

As as an independent, project based publisher we utilize crowdfunding tools like Kickstarter to presale the first edition runs of our publications.

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 Although unlikely, if this were to happen, our "backers" "pledges" will be canceled and no money will be withdrawn from your accounts.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. As an independent, arts-focused, publisher we need to both build and sustain a vital and engaged community around our practice.
