"The South is what we started out with in this bizarre, slightly
troubling, basically wonderful country—fun, danger, friendliness,
energy, enthusiasm, and brave, crazy, tough people."
—Bill Maxwell, There's no place like the South
Since 2008, I have been photographing some of the louder events in the Southeast United States. They have ranged from NASCAR races with 160,000 attendees to a group of 20 people recreating the stations of the cross. These events seem to show this area's collective love of history and the land and their fierce independent spirit.
This selection from Cavaliers focuses on living the more rural, quiet life.
