William Christenberry, Grave with Bed as Marker - Near Faunsdale Alabama from 15 Alabama Photographs, 1965 and Alec Soth, Venice, LA from one of the 25 inkjet print dummies of Sleeping by the Mississippi

Yesterday I was at MoMA’s research libraries looking at some books on Southern photography and came across these two images that bear remarkable similarities. They have a beautiful dialog together, each referencing the past, the passage of time, and the strong ties between nature and the human spirit that remain so palpable in the American South.

    I’m having an issue here. I have seen and loved both of these images and am now feeling almost violently angry at myself...
