Amie Vanderford, a reader and blog friend, is one of our favorite photographers of the Memphis that we know and love. She manages to capture it in all of its funky and eclectic charm.
If you aren’t familiar with her work, you should be. Check out her engaging portfolios on her website.

Also, her talents are being recognized by Southern Spaces, based out of Emory University. It has recently published a photo essay of hers featuring hand-painted business signs in Memphis. She has a special eye for these distinctively Memphis icons, and you can see that work here.
