Miss Bow


Hudnall credits his father, an amateur photographer, and his grandmother, who kept a family album, with teaching him the importance of documenting people and the meaning of community. Hudnall grew up in Hattiesburg, Mississippi in an area where everyone considered their neighbors to be members of their extended families. Hudnall says his work is about “the simple things in life. How we live from day to day, what we do on special holidays, family kinds of things and so forth. And this has been my mainstay in photography.”African American Art: Harlem Renaissance, Civil Rights Era, and Beyond, 2012
