Sketches from Appalachia

I had an assignment in West Virginia last weekend for a new client. From start to finish, it went remarkably well. I had a great time, met some great people, and got to spend a day in the field with Elaine McMillion, director of Hollow (you should check it out). I look forward to sharing the final piece of the assignment when it's published in a few weeks. Here are some outtakes from the trip.
