What they are saying about My Alabama:
After a rewarding hour reviewing John Dersham’s marvelous new book portraying life and places in Alabama, I was reminded of advice from renowned photographer Alfred Stieglitz, who noted that any great photograph contains two seemingly opposing elements: “a maximum of simplicity and a maximum of detail.” John is the rare photographer who makes the extra effort to be up hours before dawn, ready with camera and tripod, or to linger long after the sun has set. His keen eye for composition and technical skills distill and reﬁne nature’s inﬁnite colors into images that leave the viewer breathless.
If you are lucky enough to travel all the counties in Alabama, you would experience ﬁrsthand the heart and soul of our state. If not, just turn the pages of John Dersham’s book of photographs instead. You will discover the beautiful diversity of the Alabama landscape, from the mountains in the north to the Gulf Coast beaches of the south and the waterways that connect them. Dersham has spent a lifetime photographing Alabama. His new book speaks to his love affair with the state, a place where scenic beauty awaits you around the next curve in the road every time.
