Years ago, before I was involved with William Gay's archive, I was a fan and avid reader of his works. I often searched out any images or videos I could find of the man. To discover a new image of his rough-hewn face or to hear the deep Tennessee in his voice was always thrilling.
It was a pleasure to work on the new author photograph for the upcoming William Gay novel, Stoneburner. Originally taken by JM White, I converted it to black and white, did a few touch ups, and added some atmosphere.
