DESCRIPTION

Musician, filmmaker, performance artist, photographer and Southern provocateur Tav Falco presents 50 photographs: An Iconography of Chance. These black and white photographs-taken in the 1970s and early 1980s-provide a gothic travelogue through the Deep South. From the farmlands of rural Arkansas to downtown Memphis, the Mississippi Delta and all parts in between, Falco’s haunted images capture the fleeting vestiges of a bygone era found along the lost highways of the American South.
