Life in the steep hills of Appalachia has changed more in the last twenty years than in the previous two hundred. Long a region of farmers, burley tobacco, cattle, copious gardens, durable traditions, and hard-working families, it has become a region of retirees, developers, young urban escapees, and new highways. Aware of the transformation, Tim Barnwell set out to document the lives of the people in the land he grew up in. His sensitive portraits, landscapes, and farm scenes, and his penetrating oral histories give us an entrée into a life characterized by straightforward joys, hardships, isolation, and independence. It is a way of life we will not see again.
Tim Barnwell's images have appeared in dozens of magazines, including Time and Newsweek, and are in many permanent collections, among them the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the High Museum in Atlanta. He lives in Asheville, North Carolina.
