Moon Shine: Photographs of the Cumberland Plateau
Moon Shine: Photographs of the Cumberland Plateau is a series of photographs inspired by the unique sounds and rare musical traditions found in Tennessee’s Plateau region.
“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.”
