Caroline Herring


Over the past few months I have been working on creating the imagery for the new album of American folk singer Caroline Herring - it has been a really rewarding and inspiring experience responding to politically and emotionally charged songs; something that doesn't often enter my personal work. This image is for the song 'White Dress' about the 1960's freedom riders who rode the greyhound buses as a fight for civil rights in the deep South. In particular this image is about Mae Frances Moultrie who rode a bus that was burnt and abandoned in Anniston, Alabama.

Beautiful! I instantly knew it was based on Mae Frances Moultrie, the trees with the white blossom are amazing!
