From the Oracle of Tucker

“Technically, Kershaw lives in Tucker, but there are many place-names in Georgia (Iron Stab, Shake Rag, Snapfinger, and Hog Mountain occur to me right offhand) that I would not want to claim as a home address. And Atlanta does sound better than Tucker. But, as I have run the artist/photographer known as Addison to earth, on occasion, I know that he resides in Tucker. It’s on the map. Look it up. Not too far from Hog Mountain.”—Elizabeth Boleman-Herring

ATLANTA Georgia—(Weekly Hubris)—November 1, 2021—Editor’s Note: Well, technically, Kershaw lives in Tucker, but there are many place-names in Georgia (Iron Stab, Shake Rag, Snapfinger, and Hog Mountain occur to me right offhand) that I would not want to claim as a home address. And Atlanta does sound better than Tucker. But, as I have run the artist/photographer known as Addison to earth, on occasion, I know that he resides in Tucker. It’s on the map. Look it up. Not too far from Hog Mountain (if a long, long way from Delphi). Be that as it may, this month, we’re featuring Kershaw’s work both here, in his regular space, and on our Home Page, where you can see some of the photographs he’s taken in, er, Tucker. OK, that one image does look like it was taken in Giverny, but I can assure you it was not. Who knew Georgia could be so beautiful? Well, the Oracle of Tucker knew.
