Rory Doyle | Delta Hill Riders – with Nicole Craine – Ep.91

“…I’m able to share a story in a small part of American on a large scale and that’s not me, per say, that’s the story of this culture that’s been so overlooked and I feel really thankful that…I’ve been accepted and I’ve been able to photograph it…” Rory Doyle, Nicole Craine (Everyday Rural America, Ep.74) and I talk about his award winning Delta Hill Riders photo essay. Rory was in town for portfolio reviews and we talk about the difficulty of getting work outside of the major media parts of the country, which is a large part of the mission of Nicole’s Everyday Rural America. We also talk about the responsibility of representing communities that you are not inherently a part of and how you work in those communities with respect. After this recording, Rory was awarded the 2019 Zeiss Photography Award and the 2019 Smithsonian Photo Contest Grand Prize.
