Image Description: Mr. Bucklesy, Shelby, Mississippi, was a portrait I made in the small rural town of Shelby Mississippi in the heart of the Delta. The image always spoke to me showing the deep, powerful and beautiful culture and Mr. Bucklesy's style and the dignity and pride he effused. My book, Delta Time, published by the Smithsonian Institution Press in 1994, looks at rural Black poverty, cotton and the southern landscape with an essay by the legendary civil rights organizer Bob Moses.
