Follow the photographer, Stacy Baugher, as he takes a look at the lifelike statuary found in several Mississippi cemeteries. These stone guardians "sit" for portraits, and at times they seem almost alive.
A trained artist as far back as his formative years, Stacy Baugher now focuses on photography, but still dabbles in woodblock printing, batik tulis and other forms of expression. While he shoots with digital, his true love is still the film that he first learned on. He is often heard saying, "The way you get the image is not as important as getting it and conveying your message." As a result, he has an eclectic style and intrests which range from rural and urban landscapes, portraiture, architecture, still life and even music photography. If it interest him, he will photograph it. He currently lives in Clinton, Mississippi in the United States with his wife, two kids, and far to many projects.
