Viewfinder: Shawn Poynter Says So Long

After 15 years with the Center for Rural Strategies – six of them as visual editor of the Daily Yonder – Shawn Poynter is moving back into full-time photography. Poynter reminisces about the people and places he’s photographed and gives us his best tips for finding a parking place in rural America.

Viewfinder: Rachel Boillot

Rachel Boillot is a New York photographer who has, for now, adopted east Tennessee as home. She tells the Yonder about rural post offices, old time hill music, and having a song written about her by a flea market troubadour.
