North Mississippi Homeplace: Photographs and Folklife (Hardback)Michael Ford (author)
- We can order this
These moving photographs illustrate Ford's experiences as an apprentice to blacksmith Marion Randolph Hall, his visits to Hal Waldrip's General Store in Chulahoma, a day spent with mules crushing cane to make molasses, and afternoon barbecues accompanied by traditional African American fife-and-drum music. They also capture the evocative landscape of the Mississippi hill country and the everyday lives of its residents. In 2013 Ford returned to his adopted homeplace, camera in hand, only to find that most everything had changed?or was gone. This photo essay project juxtaposes the rural Mississippi of the 1970s and the mid-2010s with Ford's personal reflections drawn from his journals, interviews, and archival notes.
