Patrick Murphy presents his Southern photo book Reserved Mr. Memory
Wednesday 3/25, 7 pm
"The voice of photography rings brave and true in these images, many of which were taken in Chickasaw County in Northeast Mississippi. Many of these photos date from the sixties and are beautiful, sometimes disturbing documents about a place where Pat spent his early years. As a Mississippian and fellow Southerner, I am grateful to Pat for sharing these images with us.”
--William R. Ferris, Author of The South in Color: A Visual Journal.
