Moon Shine explores musical heritage in America’s Appalachian region. Old-time music, faith, and story-telling all inform this portrait of place. These photographs were made along the serpentine mountain roads between Signal Mountain and Cumberland Gap, tracing Tennessee’s Cumberland Trail corridor. Listening to the sounds of revelation springing from deep in the hollow, Boillot considered how this might translate to visual imagery. Boillot is still somewhere out there on one of those roads and she is still listening.
