Jacob Holdt featured in the new Hotshoe Magazine issue 203: Southern.

“In the spring of 1970, Danish social activist and photographer Jacob Holdt travelled to North America. After spending a night in a black neighbourhood, and seeing firsthand alienated sections of the population, he would go on to spend more than five years as a vagabond, hitchhiking across the country, selling blood to buy film to document America’s social divide. In the process, he stayed at over 400 homes, recording both the poorest migrant workers and the nation’s elite. Holding little back, Holdt produced some 15,000 densely coloured images… a more sociological approach to documenting the human condition of the South.”
