Hovering over it all is history, evoked in the words scrawled on a
makeshift grave marker: "Gone but not forgotten."
The New Yorker
For finding poetry in this slow, languorous countryscape, Ms. Clay
deserves much credit.
The New York Times
Delta Land is a subtle and unforgettable study of the Mississippi Delta.
The Oxford American Magazine
Quiet, exacting yet astonishingly emotional photographs of the Mississippi
flatscape, with an astute and thoughtful introduction by Lewis Nordan.
Clay's work resides in that place where personal reflection informs
historical document in perfect combination.
Black and White Magazine
Delta Land is a photographic project which involves the recording and
preservation of Mississippi Delta landscape and its rapidly disappearing
indigenous structures: mule barns, field churches, cotton gins,
commissaries, crossroads stores, tenant houses,
cypress sheds, and railroad stations.
Although many acclaimed photographers have focused their cameras on
the Mississippi Delta, no photographer, until now, has attempted to produce
an interpretation of the land itself. The images in this book, the work of
Maude Schuyler Clay, are the result of that undertaking.
