Gloria Baker Feinstein: You Are Kindly Welcome

Gloria Baker Feinstein took the above photograph 35 years ago, in 1979, for a project documenting Appalachia titled, You are Kindly Welcome.  Recently, Gloria’s desire to revisit familiar terrain was peaked after reading an article called “What’s Wrong with Eastern Kentucky?” in the New York Times and spending time revisiting her earlier work. Originally in 1979, she called the project “You are Kindly Welcome” and is using the same title for the new work. It’s a beautifully seen series, where she not only revisits the terrain, but revisits the same people, and allowed her camera to sit while and simply watch the world go by.
