Bainbridge-- Farming and fishing are a few long time southwest Georgia traditions. Now, you can go back to 1920 to capture moments of the Folklife of Wiregrass Georgia.

The traveling photography exhibit is on display at the Decatur County Gilbert H. Gragg Library in Bainbridge. The exhibit explores three themes, including, farming, religion and the community.

"The farming it goes into a lot of the tobacco and I think if people would come in they would be familiar with this exhibit. Maybe even see someone they know in it," said Coordinator Susan Ralph.

The folklife project was founded in 1996 by Dr. Laurie Sommers, a folklorist at Valdosta State University. You can see the free exhibit in Bainbridge until June 15th.
