Terttu Uibopuu photographs subtle signs of trauma and recovery in the American South and in her native Estonia. "As I feel at home both in America and in Estonia, I want to create my own photographic history that combines these two disparate regions," she said. "As Estonia recuperates from a political occupation, and the American South continues to deal with the aftermath of a natural disaster, I set out to photograph the less sensationalized aspects of these places."
