Southern Twang

by Jordan Thompkins

“Southern Twang” is a black and white photo series composed of photos that characterize the lifestyle, and overall legacy of the South. To me (a native northerner), the South feels historic. I walk down some of the same streets that others marched in protest and unrest.


The South is quiet, but also, playful. The summers here are charming; slow and steady. Golden hour seems never ending. 

This is the South through my eyes.
