The True Meaning of Pictures: Shelby Lee Adams' Appalachia Photos

Movie Info

This documentary explores the body of work of photographer Shelby Lee Adams. Although born into a wealthy family in Appalachia, Adams chooses to capture images of the intense poverty in the region where he grew up. As his work became more widely known, detractors began to question his motives, accusing him of exploiting the unwitting indigents of his Kentucky home. Whatever his motives, Adams' photographs paint a poignant picture of family life in one of the poorest regions of the Unites States.
