About ‘South’ – words by Jacob Mitchell:
South was shot between the years of 2015-2018 in the Southern States of the U.S.. It depicts the mesmerizing decay of buildings, businesses, and signs. This series depicts the playful attractiveness to the stale emptiness that frames daily life. Through the pictures, a world showing beauty that is often overlooked has been created.
