Tim Barnwell - 'Tide Runners: Shrimping and Fishing on the Carolinas and Georgia Coast'
This is the culmination of nine years of work by renowned photographer and author Tim Barnwell. Best known for his touching and evocative images of Appalachia, here he turns his keen eye and documentary talents to focus on the shrimping and fishing industries of the southeastern coast. This exploration took him to the Outer Banks and seaside towns of North Carolina, dozens of seaboard locations in South Carolina and Georgia, and Fernandina Beach and St. Augustine, Florida, historic home of the shrimping industry in America.
Mr. Barnwell’s exquisite color portrait and landscape photographs are combined with oral history interviews where subjects share family stories and describe their work routines and daily activities. This pairing of images and text reveal the hard work, dedication, and stamina of these independent folk and the beauty of their rugged way of life.
