Facing South: Portraits of Southern Artists

Published 2012 University of Alabama Press. Photographs by Jerry Siegel, essays by Julian Cox and Dennis Harper. Forward by Marilyn Laufer.

For more than fifteen years, Jerry Siegel has been photographing southern artists. Following in the footsteps of his namesake uncle, Jerry Siegel--who was one of the earliest collectors and promoters of southern artists--the younger Siegel continually traces regional southern artistic talent back to its creators, whom he captures in portraits as emotionally affecting as they are visually striking.
