carl kiilsgaard – the white family

Carl Kiilsgaard – burn magazine:

For more than three years I have documented rural poverty in eastern Kentucky through the eyes of the White family. Their roots in Whitesburg run deep through the generations and into the depths of the mines. Richard White, his wife Tammy, their three children, and Richard’s nephew Derrick Collins all live together in a mobile home. The son of a coal miner, Richard has experienced the problems of eastern Kentucky firsthand.
