Respect for Pride

Charley Pride . April 2008 © allison v. smith
I photographed Charley Pride last week for D Magazine. His people call him Pride. I remember when he moved in down the street from my childhood home in the 70s. It was the talk of the.... street. His story is amazing and surprisingly untouched. It's a screenplay waiting to be written. Zac Crain agrees. Read his take here. And then crank up (is Anybody Going to) San Antone.
