The stereotypical image of “small-town charm” exists in Turner County, Georgia, but so do the frank realities of modernization; the shuttered and empty storefronts, dilapidated buildings, and what feels like stagnant growth. But the Southern way of life perseveres. You can find our cultural identity in farming practices continued on familial hand-me-down land, the nurturing of our heirloom gardens, or even in the endurance of our citizens. What it means to be a Southerner, a Georgian, or even a Turner County resident can be seen clearly evident in so many continued traditions. The mission of the Turner County Project is to illuminate our cultural practices one photo at a time. To give a permanent photographic presence for future historians, amateur or professional, no matter their interests.
It is our hope to be able to crowdsource images featuring our community. If you are interested in submitting an image, email the image to email@example.com with as much info as you can provide (date, location, and a description).
