Mountain Workshop

For one week in late October, over 70 photojournalists descended on McCracken County, taking an unnerving look at the place and people that call this river community home. An exhibition of photographs and video clips from interviews will be on display at the Yeiser Art Center from February 25 to April 15, 2017.

Since 1976, the Mountain Workshops have visually documented close to 40 communities in Kentucky and north-central Tennessee. Hundreds of photojournalists have shot hundreds-of-thousands of images that depict the lives of communities such as Burkesville, Hopkinsville and Somerset in Kentucky and Celina and Lafayette in Tennessee.
