The Mississippi Delta is unlike any other area. It's both rich in culture, history and tradition but still suffers in poverty and prejudices. I visited the Delta for the first time in 2017 and was shocked to find flooded land, deserted businesses, challenged people both socio-economically and psychologically.
But I also found the Delta an intriguing place, charmed and inspired by the resilience of its people, and their stories. My photographs weave a story of the people of the Delta, and their journey through the changes and challenges of the American South.
