If a photograph can say so much by saying so little, Jerry Siegel’s photographs could fill volumes. Born and raised in Selma, AL, Siegel has turned his eye to revealing the beauty in the people and places of the South. Siegel has photographed everything from beauty queens to drag queens, the kitchen junk drawer to the garden hose, the school marching band to some of Alabama’s most famous artists.  Rarely will you come across a subject Siegel hasn’t photographed. Opening at the Shelby County Arts Council’s EBSCO Fine Art Gallery in October, The Promise of the Living/The Tender Land features work from Siegel’s monograph Facing South and Black Belt Color.  Facing South features intimate portraits of some of the south’s most famous visual artists while Black Belt Color takes a look at the landscapes and everyday people who make up the South and its culture.
