Far By Faith

"I grew up in North Carolina and attended camp meetings each year with my family.   At that time I thought that everyone knew about camp meetings.   In 1996, I returned to the tradition as an adult and soon realized that this tradition had unique roots in various regions across the United States.  Each year since 2001, I have returned to 7 campgrounds in both North and South Carolina to record camp meetings through oral interviews, photography, and video footage.  

My black and white photographs are accompanied by text panels that give the viewer additional information about camp meetings and also brings recognition to the camp participants, most of whom grew up in the tradition.   I soon realized how important this documentation would be for the young children on the grounds.

My journey continues......” – Minuette Floyd
