Anyone can take a trip to France and get a nice, artsy shot of the Eiffel Tower, but it often takes a keener eye to find the beauty in your own backyard. An eye like that of photographer Jenny Ellerbe, who finds her inspiration in the small towns, bayous and cornfields that dot the landscape near her home in Monroe, Louisiana. Here Is Home, a new exhibit of her black and white digital photography, captures the essence of the Deep South, with subjects ranging from a man collecting bait in the bayou to the weathered hand of a person buying watermelon in a farmer's market.
