Al Satterwhite's newest book project, selected from an archive of over 800 images, is drawn from the first few years of a career that has spanned over 60 years. The project, outtakes from Satterwhite's work as a news photographer and from his wanderings around the South, collects sights from daily life in the Sixties, showing what has changed and what has not.

These images are not valuable just as nostalgia. Unlike snapshot mementos, these images, made with the right combination of craft and vision, not only last, but age to perfection. Satterwhite’s news photographs, often originally created for the next morning’s edition, have, after 19,000 mornings, become something else again. Not only do they remind us of those days, but they tell an even better story now. The photos included in Southern Exposure haven’t changed, but their technical fit and finish endures, and the moment when they're seen provides a brand-new context; by art’s magic, the particular fades and the universal appears.
