Today, we’re featuring a photo series from film photographer Isabelle Baldwin that captures the beauty of the southern landscape. Here are a few words from Isabelle about her Sleepy Time Down South series…
This body of work was inspired by Louis Armstrong’s ballad, “When It’s Sleepy Time Down South,” and, like Armstrong’s track, it embraces the romantic qualities that the passage of time can have over the southern landscape.
Pulling from childhood memories, I have chosen to monumentalize the often quiet reality of a life protected by the mountains. In these silent moments, Spanish moss hangs above a cemetery in Savannah, Georgia, a hive of honey bees overlap one another in the backyard of a cabinet maker’s home in western North Carolina, and the late July sun stains a white church outside of southern Maryland.
