Portraits of the non-native South.

Chaice + McKenna | All photos by Rebecca Drolen

Artist: Rebecca Drolen

Project: Transplants

Description: Rebecca Drolen’s Transplants explores questions of how regional culture is adjusted or reassembled by the influence of outsiders. The “outsiders” depicted in the work are people who have moved to Nashville from elsewhere.


Eyes on the South is curated by Jeff Rich. The weekly series features selections of current work from Southern artists, or artists whose photography concerns the South.
