Before Y’all there was Life Magazine. This legendary publication’s place in the history of photojournalism is considered its most important contribution to publishing. After the magazine folded for a second time in 2007, many of Life’s archived photos became available for public usage. We are happy to show some of the pics snapped in Dixie, many of which have never been published.
