Jared Hamilton's "Familiar Paths"

Online Event Presented by Appalshop

Sunday, December 12th
5:00am - 4:00am
Tuesday, February 8th
5:00am - 4:00am

Jared Hamilton is a photographer based in Whitesburg, Kentucky. He's covered musicians and foodways; politics and celestial dreamscapes.

Familiar Paths is a series of black and white photos shot on medium format film. Together, the collection is about the feeling of nostalgia that Appalachian people feel when they move away from the region. Whether folks move for school or opportunities in other areas, once gone, it is easy to forget all the complicated parts of life in these mountains — and remember only the beauty.

Hamilton's photos attempt to look at Appalachia as a dreamscape of what home could be. "Tour" the collection on the "rustic virtual gallery" on our website, or purchase the framed prints in the collections from Hamilton's store.

 They'd make great holiday gifts — especially for all the loved ones in your life currently living outside the region.  

 Hamilton's show will be live on our website until February 8. We're so proud to be able to support artists like him!
