If those Southern culture geeks at the Oxford American got wind of this show, they’d be singing its praises for days. Rebekah Jacob’s latest exhibition, Somewhere in the South, is a celebration of Southern beauty at its most honest, with all the grit and grime that entails. “There is a flavor, style, and aesthetic to Southern photography that is distinctive and memorable,” says Jacob. The show will include works by photographers William Eggleston, William Christenberry, Jerry Siegel, Eliot Dudik, Kathleen Robbins, Richard Sexton, Anne Rowland, and Keliy Anderson-Staley. The opening reception will be the first chance to see this collection of unique images portraying local culture at its prettiest, quirkiest, and most unsentimental. “The American South is raw, zesty, natural, and spicier than other more manicured regions,” Jacob says. “Southern images unfold and keep unfolding in a manner unique to this part of the country.”
