Thomas Deans Fine Art is pleased to present Late Harvest: On Back Roads in the Deep South, an exhibition of photographs by Atlanta-based photographer Forest McMullin in his first solo show in Atlanta.

 

In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, McMullin set off on a personal journey to try to make sense of the results, traveling through remote corners of the Deep South. Using only a paper map as guide, McMullin spent weeks on the road in areas completely unknown to him as a northerner. He drove through rural North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas, finding his way largely by chance or whim.

The photographs he made on the trip frankly but sympathetically document the people and places he visited, and they lead the viewer to draw more nuanced conclusions than McMullin himself anticipated. The photographs reveal unexpected beauties and a profound sense of place. They are McMullin’s personal, empathic record of a region and its identity.
