Fotomonday: Natural Causes by Missy Prince

With “Fotomonday“, each week we showcase the work of women photographers from around the world.

Through capturing the details of the land and the way people live, Missy Prince attempts to give form to the tender darkness she feels in the Mississippi air. She felt it as a child and feels it as an adult returning home year after year. Natural Causes is part of a larger ongoing series called Why Don’t You Come Home.
