“Shadows of the Gullah Geechee" by Pete Marovich.

The work explores the lives and culture of the Gullah Geechee people in communities from Hog Hammock on Sapelo Island, Ga., to Mosquito Beach on Sol Legare Island, S.C. The project captures everyday moments of work, play, worship and resilience of the Gullah Geechee people as they are under increasing pressures from encroaching development and rising taxes.
