Featured Artist: Al Clayton
AJC article & Republished Book

Lumière is proud to present the work of Al Clayton. Clayton had a long and varied career in photography and was active in Atlanta, Nashville and throughout the Southeast. His work featured in the highly regarded book, Still Hungry In America, was republished (3/1/18) by the University of Georgia Press in conjunction with the Southern Foodways Alliance.

Originally published in 1969, the documentary evidence of poverty and malnutrition in the American South showcased in Still Hungry in America still resonates today. The work was created to complement a July 1967 U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Employment, Manpower, and Poverty hearings on hunger in America.The work documents conditions in Appalachia and the Mississippi Delta and was instrumental in re-vamping the Food Stamp program in the late 1960’s.

This republished book was also the focal point of an Atlanta Journal & Constitution article published Sunday March 11, 2018. Select this link to read that story on the AJC website. (subscription required)

Additional images from this body of work, his intimate Nashville portraits, and work from Atlanta in the 80’s and 90’s can be found on his Lumière artist page.
