something new to look at

I really cant stand checking someones blog on a regular basis and seeing the same old photo staring back at me every time. Which is exactly what i'm guilty of. So, here is a an update.

I recently finished the Appalachian Cultural project in Whitesburg, Ky. and so i thought i would post a couple of my favorite portraits from my time there. It took place in Eastern Kentucky and i cant say enough about the people and the culture there. The landscape has a mystique to it that is almost addicting. It is refreshing to be in a town that feels alive, and has a pulse. To meet real people facing real problems everyday. It was truly a sobering experience. I know that one day i want to return there on my own for one reason or another.

Check out the Website to see the rest of the workshop

You're right about that. I almost forgot about you for a second.

That's some great stuff on there. Looks like you guys really captured a mood that the area has.

I'm doing the American Diversity Project in May in Pikeville, KY. I imagine it might be similar to that?

Great pics, Kohl--all of them. You've got an amazing eye.
Let me know if there's some way I can share those two portraits with the subjects (other than the 'net--since they don't have it). It would mean a lot to them.
