Moon Shine: Photographs of the Cumberland Plateau
Moon Shine is a collection of photographs inspired by the unique musical traditions found in Tennessee’s Cumberland Plateau.
“Boillot’s artistic project, Moon Shine, utilizes the atemporal nature of the photograph to create a sensitive study of the Cumberland Plateau—a region in which matters of time are similarly deep-rooted. Boillot produces images ripe with sensory elements that reference the eternal forces of both nature and the religious afterlife, and confront the ultimate reality of mortal death. In the moonlit shadow of an ancient mountain range, time is measured by different metrics. Moon Shine celebrates this difference, safeguarding a past for the present and future.”
- Lisa Volpe, Assistant Curator of Photography, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX
The monograph Moon Shine: Photographs of the Cumberland Plateau will be published by Daylight Books in April 2019.
Rachel Boillot’s documentary film In That Valley of Gold will also be released at that time.
