Since the moment William Ferris's parents gave their 12-year-old son a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera for Christmas in 1954, the Mississippi native passionately began to photograph his world. He has never stopped. The 1960s and ’70s were a particularly significant period for Ferris as he became a pathfinding documentarian of the American South. An exhibition of Ferris’s color photographs, The South in Color, opens at the Margaret Mitchell House at Atlanta History Center Midtown. The 49-image exhibition shares the same name as Ferris’s 2016 book, which was lauded for its intimate portrayal of African-American and white Southerners living their daily lives.
