Shelby Lee Adams is a great photographer. Phenomenal, and personally, I'm a fan. But, it really bugs me when I search "Appalachian photojournalism" and this is what I get. People who are unclothed, filthy, and usually toothless. This is why all of America sees us this way. This is all were allowing them to see.

Mug shot, 1950. Wonder what's the story behind this photo... perhaps domestic violence? Girl gang?

"I especially like this photograph of a girl holding scrap timber. It fascinates me that her clothes and jewelery demonstrate such pride in her appearance, even while her hands are dirty and she is collecting firewood. It is obvious that Horace Warner never asked his subjects to smile, instead he granted them the space for self-possession and she presents herself on her own terms, with composed equanimity and preoccupied in her world."

I love Shelby Lee Adams' work.

Shelby Lee Adams, Cody and Tank, 04. "If you sold my son's picture for a million dollars tomorrow that would be great, because we have one of the pictures in our home and we are proud of it. If you have to pay someone to take their picture, then it's fake." Holbert White, Mountain Voices, 2007' Cody's dad.
