The collages are from a scrapbook I made while traveling in the Mississippi Delta in 2016. I was there with some other photographers but was feeling a bit fed up with documentary photography and the tradition of outsiders parachuting into the South. To create a more creative space for myself, I started collecting random shards of material for this scrapbook. At the time I called it "Rabbits in Trees." I'd forgotten why, but I just looked up my notes and found these two quotes:
"Well, on every old broken-down tree you could see rabbits and snakes and such things; and when the island had been overflowed a day or two they got so tame, on account of being hungry, that you could paddle right up and put your hand on them if you wanted to."
Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
