Moon Shine: Photographs of the Cumberland Plateau is a body of work inspired by the unique musical traditions of the Cumberland Plateau. This region is home to a rich storytelling heritage, showcased in historic fiddle tunes, balladry, religious gospel pieces and other songs passed down as part of a formidable—but quickly disappearing—oral tradition. Rachel Boillot has channeled these traditions into a lyrical portrait of place, and the photographs in this exhibition act as a visual score to mirror musical melody. Her work explores the relationship between what is heard and what is seen, with a tension between mystery and revelation pervading the work.
