People Of Plains, Ga.

Photographs By Steven Borns

People of Plains, Ga. is an intimate portrait of President Jimmy Carter’s hometown, seen through the camera of Steven Borns and told in the words of the people who live there. In 25 interviews with white and black townspeople, Borns conveys their humanity, trust, and warmth as they talk about their love for the land, their belief in God, racial relations, and neighborly responsibilities.
