The Hidden South is an ongoing project that documents intimate stories and portraits of people throughout the Southeast U.S. The project was started in September, 2014 by Brent Walker.

In 2015, followers of the project funded the first book, The Hidden South - Come Home. This enabled Brent to take a trip around the Southeast and publish the book in early 2016.

Since the release of the book, Brent spends his time traveling the South, spreading the word about the project and finding more hidden stories to share.
