Description: The ghosts of past centuries find undisturbed refuge in the American South from the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains down to the fertile flat lands of the Gulf Coast. For New Orleans-based photographer David Knox, the past resides in the present in many forms - land, crops, architecture, and people. In his most recent body of work, he combines historical images from the American Civil War with his own photographs to create photomontages depicting an imagined, surreal world set somewhere in the mid-19th century South. These tableaux weave together the disparate lives of Union and Confederate soldiers of the Civil War, freedmen and slaves, civilians and clergy.For more than two decades New Orleans-based photographer David Knox has lived in the Southeast and documented the region's landscapes and people. His work combines 19th, 20th, and 21st century photographic processes in single image and collage. His photographs have been exhibited in galleries in Atlanta, Birmingham and New Orleans. He is a photography teacher and lecturer, and holds an MFA degree from the San Francisco Art Institute.
