Taking a wide view of Greenville has also allowed the GISH collective to expand—bringing other photographers and even writers into their fold. Just a few months ago Dooney and Layman invited Aaron Turner, a photographer who was raised in the nearby Arkansas Delta, to join the collective. Turner says he was interested in working with GISH, in part, because of the non-stereotypical ways in which the collective was representing his region. “I’m used to working alone and carrying the burden of the south myself,” Turner says. “To have other passionate individuals who want to get the story right is an amazing opportunity.” Turner notes that the stories of people from The Delta, much like the stories of those from Appalachia, have been prone to severe oversimplification. Although Turner’s work will not be featured in PopUP Greenville he says he is interested in focusing in on the experiences of the African American community in Greenville.
