As a freelance photo editor/art researcher, I work with multiple clients. One of them is Art Researcher for the Oxford American, a magazine of “writing and art from or about the South.” In the years I’ve worked for the OA, I’ve concentrated heavily on fulfilling the promise of getting artwork by Southerners, or artwork made in or about the South, into the pages of each issue.
