This is more than just an exploration of the Arkansas Delta, more than just simple truths. This set of images is more about longing and connection to those things I once remembered as a child. Memories that keep coming back, the longer I stay away from home. This project is about family. The small city of West Memphis, located in Crittenden County, Arkansas and all of its rural outlying areas is where I call home. Memories of my grandmother’s food to funerals of great aunts and uncles, family, that’s what I wan to hold onto. I hope looking at these images gives a better since of who I am and where I come from, the culture of cotton farming, southern traditional cooking, church, personal reflections and interests, its all part of me. I photograph this place to preserve memories of comfort and family.
