Sprott Redux: New Bethel Baptist Church, Braggs, Alabama, Lowndes County

I took this series of photos of Lowndes County as part of a graduate interdisciplinary course that studied various aspects of the Black Belt region that runs through south central Alabama. One of our speaker was William Christenberry, a native Alabamian and noted artist now working in Washington, DC, originally from Hale County, one of the poorest counties in the state. He is, in part, noted for his austerely beautiful photos and structural interpretive models of rural structures in the western Black Belt, primarily Hale County. One was of a plain church named Sprott that was as beautiful as a cathedral. This church above is one Christenberry would appreciate.

The remarkable thing about this austere church is that there is almost no camera parallax in the photo. The towers really do curve inward.
