After 17 Years in California, a Mountain Girl Returns

Cross-posted from The Bitter Southerner.  [Words and Photos by Amanda Greene]  “Athens, Ga., photographer Amanda Greene recaptures scenes from her Southern childhood.”  

I was born in Clayton, Ga. My grandparents lived up there. My mother grew up there, but we lived in Atlanta. It was, I think, cheaper to have a baby in the hospital up there. Always, when I was little, I was like, ‘I’m a mountain girl.’ I had this pride that I was from the mountains, even though I didn’t live in the mountains. That’s where I was born.”
