Oldfields (Photo essay)

By Mary Anderson Pickard.

"One of my most painful and poignant losses seems to be the loss of a place. A place called Oldfields where I first connected to the earth..."

Mary Anderson Pickard daughter of Walter Anderson, reflects on time, life, and the art of losing in this photo essay produced with Blue Magnolia Films. She does it, as she does everything, with grace and vision.

Oldfields was the family home, located on the bluff in Gautier overlooking the Mississippi Sound.
