Todd County

Todd County, Kentucky sits between corn and tobacco farms in Western Kentucky near the Tennessee boarder. Back in the Summer of 2013 I commissioned by the Justice Department of Todd County to photograph life in the county. The final work was to be displayed in 20, 20″x30″ prints that would hang on the walls of their new Justice Center.

I met farmers, mennonites, mechanics, artists, teachers, football coaches and soda jerks. Just about everyone I met knew exactly what building, landmark or event should be portrayed on the walls of the new Justice Center. I was fortunate enough to visit just about every single one of them. The County ended up picking their favorite 20 to be hung, but these are the ones I’d like to share.
