This project for the color Photographs I used a Canon 50D DSLR, and the Black and White I used a Bronica 645 and Ilford HP4 125 120mm black and white roll film.

My family has lived in the Appalachian region for many generations and has witnessed major changes to the places where they lived. Changes such as the railroads that cut through the mountains and valleys, and the development of paved roads replacing the dirt horse trails they had come to know. Writer Italo Svevo once said, “The past is always new: it changes continuously as life goes on. Parts of it, seemingly forgotten, emerge again, while others, being less important, plunge into oblivion.” In that light, the old roads, communities, and rail roads of all generations of Appalachian people are ever changing and are always new.
Like the generations of my family, I too have witnessed change to my home town of Kingsport and the surrounding areas, whether they were big or small. I capture these changes today by photographing the railroads, construction sites, housing developments, new or reused buildings, and the way they all interact with the terrain.
In the heart of the Appalachian valley you can look around and all you can see is a horizon line of mountain tops. When I am taking my photographs I look at the clean smooth light that falls over the mountains, and their inhabitants. The light defines the lush trees in the summer, the eerie leafless trees in the winter, and the soft contrast that is cast throughout the land. The early morning light is so unique, it shins softly but bright over the mountains then is broken up across the land because of the creating these patches of beautiful highlights on whatever it touches.
I never know where or what I am going to photograph on any given day. I usually drive around with an idea of what I want to photograph and when I see it I stop. When I stop I not only photograph the what I stopped for, but I walk around for hours taking in the scenery, breathing in the fresh Appalachian air to clear my mind, and insure that I do not miss the perfect picture.
Saw this and had to take a picture of it! The right one is another of my favorite Robert Adams Photographs!
The past is always new: it changes continuously as life goes on. Parts of it, seemingly forgotten, emerge again, while others, being less important, plunge into oblivion. The present directs the past as the members of an orchestra.
In this body of work called “New Appalachia,” I am exploring the inhabitation of man into the vast, old and glorious terrain of the Appalachian Mountains and how the terrain has been marred with roads buildings and industry. Yet the rhythm, movement and beauty of the terrain and the environment around it still have a glorious way of shining through and overpowering the marred landscapes that are left by our exploration and expansion into the Appalachian Mountains.
“I though I was taking pictures of the things I hated…but there was something about these pictures, they were unexpectedly, disconcertingly, GLORIOUS!”
