Mike Smith's photographs of rural Tennessee embrace the lush beauty of the land, even as he reveals the suburban encroachment that threatens much of rural Appalachia. In his large-format color photographs, Smith unearths telling signs of human impact on the landscape, from aged, weather-beaten farm buildings that seem an organic part of the landscape to the jarring reality of bright, new multi-pump gas stations.
