In Memoriam

Vintage photography taken by my grandmother, Georgia S Chappell, who used the medium to document her life in Appalachia (North Carolina). The final photo is my grandmother in her plane when she flew with the Civil Air Patrol during WWII.

She inspired me to become a photographer and an artist, and her influence is integral to the woman and human being I am today. I hope her work can find the recognition and appreciation it deserves through this modern outlet.
