New Images of the American South by Andrew Moore

I have a sense, perhaps because of the long history of adversity, that the story of Alabama at this moment in time is of growing importance, and that no region of the country better encapsulates the contrasts, the challenges, and the aspiration for truth and reconciliation. – Andrew Moore

Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta, Georgia, debuts of a much-anticipated new body of work from photographer Andrew Moore.  The series, Blue Alabama, showcases the American South, specifically the Black Belt region of Alabama. The Black Belt is a rich and complex region Moore calls “the most prominent social and cultural feature of Lower Alabama.” The 14 photographs in the exhibition evince Moore’s signature style – large format prints captured by and 8×10 view camera and shot on film. Jackson Fine Art says of the images: “Their scale and clarity enable the viewer to step into the Blue Alabama storybook unguarded and freely crossing thresholds of humanity equal in scope and richness.”
