In What I Keep Susan Mullally presents an unforgettable photographic study of twenty-first century poverty-one that transcends class and race, profession and talent. These portraits capture the individuals who gather on Sunday mornings at a nondenominational, multicultural church that has been meeting below an Interstate overpass for sixteen years. In these photographs, each member holds one personal item-the one item that he or she keeps while struggling to survive. Accompanying each portrait, a brief statement from the individual describes the valuable item and its significance in his or her own words.
Susan Mullally is Assistant Professor of Art at Baylor University. Mullally's work has appeared in Ms. Magazine, The Nation, Literary Companion, Arts Journal, and The Christian Science Monitor. She has photographed Maya Angelou, Rosa Guy, Pauli Murray, and A. R. Ammons for their books by major publishers. Her publications include Hope and Dignity: Older Black Women of the South, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. She lives in Waco, Texas.
