Abstract: These supernatural stories come to life from my research as new photographs appropriated from my family albums and vernacular images to create visual folklore about the Appalachian Mountains of Eastern Kentucky. The images are my interpretations of family stories , memories , history , things I have read that make my birthplace a unique region where magic happens.
