Into the Flatland is a series of photographs documenting the land, people, and culture of the Mississippi Delta. The artist returned to her ancestral home as an adult in 2001 after completing graduate studies in New Mexico. She and her brother lived on the farm for nearly two years, breathing life back into family properties that had been long dormant.
