The Faulkner Portable, which I shot in William Faulkner's office at his home (operated as a museum) in Oxford, Mississippi. The image appears on the cover of the Cambridge Introduction to William Faulkner. Signed and numbered prints are available from Southside Gallery on the Oxford Square or directly from me.

I also take passable head-shots, product shots, available-light candids and other imagery that might accompany my web and writing projects. I am usually better at shooting things than people.
African Village in America: This half-acre of yard sculpture is one of the most dramatic examples of visionary self-taught art anywhere. A pilgrimage to Alabama’s civil rights shrines wouldn’t be complete without a glimpse into this humble, private vision of peace and justice. ... There are representations of African warriors watching their descendants’ struggles in Alabama … and hand-lettered messages everywhere…street signs with names like ‘Self Hate Street,’ ‘Gang Warfare Street,’ and ‘Babies Having Babies Having Babies Self-Genocide Street.’ Don’t worry about fear and loathing on Nassau St, though; it’s a peaceful residential area.
