Welcome to Appalachia

Coconut Telegraph

There’s a new exhibit that is making its home at the Ringling until mid-September. Appalachia USA is a documentary project by photographer Builder Levy that presents life and labor in coal mining communities through lush black and white photographs. Through Levy’s lens, we connect to the miners on a personal level as we explore the intimate interiors of family homes, the natural beauty of the landscape, and the distinctive rural vernacular and material culture that marks the region’s unique identity. Levy began the project in 1968 in the effort to both dispel the “hillbilly” stereotypes of the subjects by emphasizing their humanity and dignity, and also to record and teach others about the social landscape of America. Go no further than the Ringling to take the trip to Appalachia and experience this rich history in person.
