LBM Dispatch #7: Georgia

Over two sweltering, bug-swarming weeks in July, the LBM Dispatch crew (superbly assisted by Stephen Milner and Brett Schenning) covered 2,400 miles in¬†Georgia, exploring the State’s diverse landscapes, histories, and narratives that were alternately harrowing and inspiring.¬† From the Civil War to the last beleaguered Gullah Geechee community on Sapelo Island, the result is a sort of see-sawing time-lapse portrait of a region that continues to straddle the past and the present, and that seems to exist in a state of conflicted nostalgia and perpetual reconstruction.

The LBM Dispatch is an irregularly published newspaper of the North American ramblings of photographer Alec Soth and writer Brad Zellar.
