Lot description
Since the early 1960's, William Christenberry has captured the regional identity of the American South, focusing his attention on his native Hale County, Alabama. At the heart of this work is a singular theme: the history of place. His poetic documentation of Southern vernacular architecture, signage, and landscape captures moments of quiet beauty. The rustic landscape, the faded signs, and the ramshackle, weathered buildings are all reminders of the power of the passage of time.
