Brandon Thibodeaux: In That Land of Perfect Day

After spending nine years in the northern Mississippi Delta, in a primarily African American space, Thibodeaux's self-proclaimed journey for self-discovery turned into one of renewed trust and determination. In a place mired in poverty and racial tensions, Thibodeaux's work seeks to emphasize the "tender and yet unwavering human spirit that resides within its fabric." The tenacity and the faith of those that he encountered are not just specific to that of the rural black experience, but are a link of commonality between us all, which Thibodeaux says is perhaps the "lesson I was looking for all along." His first monograph In That Land of Perfect Day presents the documentation work he did among these inhabitants of the Mississippi Delta, as he found solace their stories and perseverance in their pain.
