Featuring work by: Jane Robbins Kerr

Exhibition: Sun, Aug 30, to Mon, Oct 26 2009

In 2006, I returned to Mississippi, my home, to photograph the oldness and richness of place, signs, buildings, and people. A lot of these pictures were made in the Delta with a spilling over to Jackson and Natchez. After spending time connecting while making these photographs, I feel I truly have gone home.
