This spring while I was doing research for my photography project 1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi, 3 Mississippi, was my the first time I stayed in Mississippi. I was blessed by my multiple encounters from Oxford to Natchez. Some of them are in the pictures below. These Mississippians opened their homes to me, introduced me to their family, drove me to different places, took the time to share stories and experiences, cooked for me and so much more. Most of them didn't even know who I was before I arrived in Mississippi.
