Appalachia

This project was created to combat the myth that people from Appalachia have no positive aspects to them. Certain positive characteristics that can definitely be applied to many Appalachian people were selected and photographed either metaphorically or literally, then paired with a portrait of someone from Appalachia who portrays that characteristic in their life.
