SCREEN PRINT x BACKWATER FLOOD

Posted by Claire Brandon on

Flood waters haven't lasted this long in the south Delta since the Great Flood of 1927. That amount of water and its effects can be hard to describe, so we figured no better place to shoot our limited run of screen-printed vintage than out in the middle of it.  We spent the afternoon in Rolling Fork, Mississippi where the water was manageable compared to that found in Eagle Lake.  Shot by Jessie Holloway

The photographer would be Joshua Black Wilkins and the job for New West Records' Dalton Domino.  We whipped it together, I pulled Billy Reid, a bad ass vintage suit from Starstruck Vintage, and a piece of Delta's own (coming soon). Check it out! We all wound up immensely proud of the result.
