2018: Mark Peterson

In The Past is Never Dead, Mark Peterson photographs the modern-day American confederacy and White Nationalism by taking a close look at its traditions, symbols and leaders, documenting inside homes, schools, and on the streets, as this political and cultural movement establishes the contemporary incarnation of white supremacy.

“This is a violent movement wrapped in the language of reclamation, patriotism and cultural heritage. It’s central aim is the dismantling of decades of civil rights, immigration and gender equality legislation and the promotion of a revisionist history which claims slavery wasn’t such a bad thing.”
