In trying to gain entry to the interior, private world of Southern Appalachia virtually forgotten by the rest of America, photographer Mike Smith would often hear, upon knocking at a door, "You're not from around here." Despite his "outsider" status, Smith, through these beautiful photographs, allows us a rare and intimate glimpse of this unique region of America. With You're Not from Around Here, Smith joins the ranks of those renowned artists who chronicled the American South - including Walker Evans, William Eggleston, William Christenberry, and Eudora Welty - investigating its landscape and unraveling its complexities. Since arriving in East Tennessee in 1981 to teach, Smith has spent the past twenty-three years exploring the delicate nuances of life and land that define Southern Appalachia. Following in the footsteps of its photographic forebears, You're Not from Around Here injects a new voice into the canon that is direct, complex, and mature.
