A COLLECTION OF PHOTOS BY JODI JAMES -- FOREWORD BY CLAY PARKER
Jodi James is a singer/songwriter from Burnside, Louisiana. Having been raised on a family-owned and operated sugarcane farm, she developed from early on an appreciation for the surrounding elements and an understanding that this relationship can be essential to one's livelihood. As soon as her musical endeavors afforded the opportunity to travel, the time and distance between performances began to inspire a sense of wonderment and a longing to capture the in-between vitality of the road by way of photographic media. She and partner Clay Parker spend a large portion of the year touring the U.S., and these photos were taken from either the passenger seat of their whirring van or an accommodating roadside.
