A while back, while working with an art consulting company, I was asked to go to Americus, Georgia, to trying catch the flavor of this small town. Their hospital had been destroyed in a tornado and was being rebuilt. Our firm was involved in providing the art for the new hospital. At the time, it was one of my first tastes of the rural South. I found a town with history (it was the site of a confederate hospital) and charm and delighted on wondering around with my camera.
I was really honored to be a part of the rebuilding of the local hospital (and, as such, the town itself). Several of my images are on display in the lobby. I’ve been back a few times for follow-up visits and I was always welcomed with that particular brand of Southern hospitality.
