Through dozens of murky photographs and sometimes morbidly forthright observations, Sanne Peper details her search for the traces of Southern Gothic iconography in the Deep South of the United States. In literature, the Southern Gothic style is one that employs the use of macabre, ironic events to examine the values of the American South, exploring social issues and revealing its cultural character. Impenetrable swamps, decaying automobiles, trees draped in Spanish moss, ghost towns, shacks in the forest, moonshine, and colourful characters all make their appearance in Peper’s first-hand cross-section of this unforgettable landscape. With a short story by Jim White.
