Finding SoLost

Posted By on Thu, Oct 7, 2010 at 10:09 AM

Thanks to an Oxford American facebook entry, I found this NPR story on photographer Dave Anderson, who spoke here recently about his photographic record of a New Orleans city block post-Katrina ("One Block") that has been touring the country. The writer notes a series of serendipitous events that led her to the Little Rock photographer and his "SoLost" video vignettes of the South that can be found on the OA's website.

It all began a few weeks ago, as I was reading about a photo exhibition called One Block — a story of daily life on one block in post-Katrina New Orleans. Curious to know more, I contacted the photographer.

Meanwhile, I had also been watching Oxford American magazine's documentary series about life in the American South. SoLost ("lost in the South" or, literally, "so lost") is described as an "off-kilter video journey through the side roads, backrooms, cellars and psyche of the modern South." (Read: It's awesome.) I decided to look up the producer as well.

Turns out, the One Block photographer and SoLost producer are the same person: Dave Anderson. And it gets weirder. Just yesterday he was in town presenting the latest SoLost installment, titled Gulf Life.

It's a nice piece with links to Anderson's videos (like the one above about a letterpress shop in Kentucky and below about Mountain View) and the OA's stellar website.
