    Amazing. Really takes you back to another time and place!

    My apology for posting direct scans from the negs. I much prefer making a nice silver print then scanning but just didn’t have the time. I’ve never felt that a direct scan from the beginning was as beautiful as a fine silver print. But these will have to do for now. Thanks for looking. There will be more to come.

    These are very nice. I'm not very familar with the region, having visted only the periphery and then eastern WV once. They seemed like friendly folks but on the whole didn't seem entirely comfortable with outsiders. Apparently you had no problems getting them to pose for you?

    Seems wherever you go, Appalachia hardly changes. In 1973, I drove from Louisville, KY, to Norfolk, VA for Navy Reserve duty. I had to drive US 60 for over 100 miles east of Charleston, WV. The scenes were exactly the same along there. Same with areas of eastern Kentucky.

    Excellent set; well done!
    Best,

    Very nice tribute to a beautiful part of our nation and very unique people. I spent a few years in Wise and Harlan Counties. While I never felt at home, I always felt welcomed. Sometimes it took a while, though.

    I made many trips on that ferry with my grandfather prior to the bridge over the Tennessee River being completed. Even after it was finished my grandmother preferred the ferry because the bridge was so high above the river.

    Don, your photos of Appalachia are striking and reminiscent to those made by the FSA photographers in the great depression. You are in a class with Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, Arthur Rothstein, and Russell Lee.

    Thanks for all the kind comments.

    I didn’t set out to copy anyone’s work but have always loved the work of the FSA photographers. I’d also add one more name to the list, although not one of the FSA group, that I’ve always admired is Lewis Hine.
