Humans of Central Appalachia…In Living Color

Since the inception of the Humans of Central Appalachia Facebook page in June, 2014, the conscious decision was made to post all images in black and white, although all original images are shot as raw color files. Presenting the photos in grayscale imparts a reality to the images that enables the viewer to connect to the subject on an instinctual level. However, sometimes during the editing process, we come across a photo of a particularly colorful Appalachian that makes it hard to stick to our black and white standards. Here are some of our favorite color images for those who might like to see things a little differently.
