SOUTH is coming along so well! Many contributors are on board, the call for photo entries is out and this dream project of mine should be on shelves in the Spring of 2014. Stay tuned…SOUTH’s website will debut very soon. It’ll be a sneak peak into this high-quality coffee table book, which will be distributed and marketed nationally. SOUTH will capture the true emotions of the people who have called it home, or just come for a visit.
I want to celebrate the South, its landscape, its people, its ever evolving state of mind and more.
For more information about the Call for Photo Entries in SOUTH, please visit Lydia Inglett Ltd.
