    Roadside South

    David Wharton

    Documentary photographer David Wharton will discuss images in his Gammill Gallery exhibition, which includes photographs from his recently published fourth book, Roadside South, the third in his Trilogy of the American South series. The exhibition, also titled Roadside South, is currently on view in the Gammill Gallery in Barnard Observatory through September 30.

    David Wharton is an assistant professor of Southern Studies and the director of documentary studies at the Center for the Study of Southern Culture. He is the author of four books of photographs: The Soul of a Small Texas Town: Photographs, Memories, and History from McDade, Small Town South, The Power of Belief: Spiritual Landscapes from the Rural South, and Roadside South.

    SouthTalks is a series of events (including lectures, performances, film screenings, and panel discussions) that explores the interdisciplinary nature of Southern Studies. This series is free and open to the public, and typically takes place in the Tupelo Room of Barnard Observatory unless otherwise noted. There are quite a few interesting virtual offerings this semester. Virtual events allow us to connect to larger audiences unable to attend programming in person and allow speakers to participate in the series no matter their location. Visit the Center’s website for up-to-date-information about all Center events.
