Over there the dogs don’t take no junk.”
So says locally famous outside artist Clyde Jones from Carboro, NC.
Clyde makes critters from Haw River wash up.
He paints his house with swirls of amoebas and naps on the porch with a pack of feral dogs. This book documents Clyde and his peculiar world through haunting black and white photography and laconic poetry. A strange portrait of the American South emerges from these backwoods where Clyde’s Dogs roam freely and lone men seek solace in scraps of driftwood.

He then went off to school to study anthropology and to perfect his family’s magical tradition of making Something out of Nothing. He has climbed trees all over the world but lives in New York City just to ride the subway.
