Truest Portraits of the Appalachian Region


Author(s):
Abstract:
Born in Watauga County in 1884, W.R. Trivett taught himself the art and science of photography to supplement his farming income. Trivett’s photographs challenged the stereotypical views of Appalachians being poor, uneducated, and isolated. The majority of Trivett’s subjects followed popular culture and represented the truest portraits of the region.
