The headline says it all, the Mid-Atlantic Field Guide is The last guide to the Peoples and the places of the Mid-Atlantic region and the Universe beyond as reported by award-winning photojournalist Holiday Rhoads.
A big promise, and one that Holiday Rhoads is well equipped to keep. For nigh on 60 year now, photographer Rhoads has plied his trade as photojournalist throughout the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States of America, documenting the life and death of its many and varied people.
Their joys and fears and pleasures have all, at one time or another, come under the unblinking lens of Rhoads.
