These are a few of the things that are associated with my southern identity. It was very important for me to capture things that I could closely relate to; so, this is how I captured my South.

There is an old saying that goes, “the higher belief one has then the poorer he or she will be.” I for one do not agree with this saying; However, I do see a correlation with poverty and the praise of a higher being. Churches are where people go to give praise to the Lord. I wanted to investigate is there any truth to the old saying so, I went to Frayser area in Memphis, Tennessee 38127. I also went to Doulgass Community. 38108 zip code and there are churches on every street and some even had two different churches on the same street.
