Magdalena Sole at The Southeast Museum of Photography in Daytona


Magdalena Solé’s Mississippi Delta is a photographic exploration of the Delta communities in the Deep South, evoking visions of sharecroppers, plantations and the sound of the Blues. The area has a small wealthy gentry and a large impoverished underclass. What is little known outside the Delta is the warmth, resilience, community and family cohesiveness of its people. In 2012, Solé’s in-depth study of the region was published as "New Delta Rising" (The Dreyfus Health Foundation and University Press of Mississippi). (Click HERE for more info)
