The purpose of this photographic archive is to preserve what is left of the culture of rural South Georgia. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to document my small corner of the world. Every day, modernization threatens the very fabric of life that has persisted in South Georgia for the better part of two centuries. Tobacco barns, country stores, farmhouses, Confederate icons, African-American vernacular churches, rural schoolhouses and sharecropper shacks are all disappearing at an alarming rate. Because there is no real effort to preserve these structures and the culture they represent, I feel the only way to make them relevant is to share these photographs. I hope you’ll share this blog with as many people as you can. Brian Brown, 13.5.09
