Micah Cash: Signing and Presentation

Micah Cash's work exhibits nationally and has been featured most recently in The Bitter Southerner, The Atlantic, and Charlotte Magazine. His first monograph, Dangerous Waters, investigates the landscapes of the Tennessee Valley Authority's (TVA) hydroelectric program and considers the tenuous balance between locations that are designed for both hydroelectric generation and public recreation. 

Join Micah for a presentation and signing at Main Street Books on Saturday evening.

“For the last century and a half, the photo essay has been a vital cultural form. Working in this modern form, Micah Cash’s book depicting the hydroelectric dams of the Tennessee Valley Authority and the localities of these dams provides a compelling and valuable depiction of a crucial reshaping of the American landscape. The sensibility conveyed by Cash’s photographs is engaged and caring but also honest. One feels both the thickness of history and the complexity of the present, while remaining subtly reminded of the inescapable difficulty of representing these matters through images.” —Robin Kelsey, Shirley Carter Burden Professor of Photography, Harvard University
