‘I Go Deeper and Deeper into the Holler’: Photojournalist Don Dudenbostel’s Appalachian Adventures
Don Dudenbostel’s photographs are featured this May in the River Gallery's exhibition Defining Roots. Dudenbostel's photos document disappearing, hidden and infamous aspects of Appalachian culture. Throughout the past few decades, he has photographed snake handlers, moonshiners (particularly legendary moonshiner Popcorn Sutton), cockfighters, Ku Klux Klan members and neo-Nazis. “I try never to influence my images with personal feelings,” he says in this interview.
