In this follow-up to our bestselling Brooklyn Makers, photographer Jennifer Causey returns to her Southern roots to introduce us to a group of artisans with a long tradition of craftsmanship and a wonderfully vibrant cultural history. In communities across the South, amidst breathtaking country landscapes and bustling city neighborhoods, a thriving creative revival is underway. In Southern Makers, Causey captures the spirit of this movement by documenting twenty-five of the area's most celebrated craftspeople. This eclectic mix of established and up-and-coming makers includes bakers, textile artists, denim designers, jewelers, woodworkers, brewers, farmers, and more. Causey's photographs are suffused with Southern charm as she explores the artisans' spaces, from restored homes and old factories to repurposed gas stations, general stores, and flowering fields. These lively interviews reveal personal inspirations and motivations, along with heartfelt reflections on the place where they live and work.
