Jane Rule Burdine has been photographing the people and landscapes of Mississippi and beyond for over forty years. She was raised in the Mississippi delta town of Greenville but purchased a farm in Taylor, Mississippi, in 1983. During the Southern writing renaissance of the 80s and 90s in Oxford, her home became a central hub for bohemian life. Throughout the years, Jane Rule has hosted the famous and infamous: world renowned actors, musicians, artists and writers mixed with farmers, hunters, outlaws, bootleggers, liars and every imaginable raconteur. Once called by the writer Barry Hannah “the Gertrude Stein of the Mississippi,” Burdine might be the most famous unknown artist in the South. Yet her talent reaches far beyond any region. Through the quotidian she arrives at the universal, the uncanny, the beautifully strange.
