The SCAD Museum of Art, in partnership with the Consulate General of France in Atlanta, Georgia, presents a new series of photographs by French photographer Pierre Gonnord.

Through the faces and landscapes encountered, "Portraying the South" captures a glimpse into the soul of the Deep South, offering a timeless, unclassifiable, explosive and riveting portrayal of the American Southeast.
