A selection of Shelby Lee Adams Artist Statement from the PhotoAlliance website:

“My work has been an artist search for a deeper understanding of my heritage and myself, using photography as a medium and the Appalachian people as collaborators with their own desires to communicate. I hope, too, that viewers will see in these photographs something of the abiding strength and resourcefulness and dignity of the mountain people…I love these people, perhaps that is it, plain and simple. I respond to the sensual beauty of a hardened face with many scars, the deeply etched lines and flickers of sweat containing bright spots of sunlight…My greatest fear as a photographer is to look into the eyes of my subject and not see my own reflection.”
