For 25 years, Shelby Lee Adams has been documenting the people of Appalachia. His affectionate portraits of individuals and families speak to us with tenderness and sincerity, and the fact that Adams returns to the mountains year after year is a testament to his dedication to show their challenging existence while maintaining their dignity. Adams has received two NEA fellowships, and his work is also included in the collections of many major museums, including the Art Institute of Chicago, National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others. Adams’ photographs have been published in two volumes: Appalachian Portraits, 1993, and Appalachian Legacy, 1998.

Larry Sultan was born in 1946 in New York. His work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Sultan’s “Pictures form Home” (1992) combines images of his aging parents with dialogue that hints at the conflict beneath the surface. This particular image is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago. In 2005, he published “The Valley,” a body of work documenting pornographic film sets in Southern California. Sultan was a professor at the California College of the Arts and sadly passed away last month.
