For Virgins, Louisiana-based photographer Ransom Ashley revisits the memories and psychological currents of his childhood and coming of age in the town of Shreveport.
Writes Ashley in his Artist Statement, “It was when I was young that I realized I wanted to be a storyteller, in any and every way possible. My work became centered around emotions and exploration; focused on both physical and emotional narratives inspired by a lot of my own personal experiences or feelings at different times in my youth while growing up in small town Louisiana”
