Yesterday Once More is a project looking at photography’s transformative process to understand a place and how visual representation addresses change over time, revision of belief systems, and lifestyle. The project focuses specifically on the delta region of eastern Arkansas and the cycles of family migration and memory of place.
Aaron Turner is an artist/photographer and educator currently based in Arkansas. He uses photography to pursue personal stories of people of color, in two main areas of the U.S., the Arkansas and Mississippi Deltas. Aaron also uses the view camera to create still life studies on the topics of race, history, blackness as material, and the role of the black artist.
