EXCERPT FROM FOREWORD
“If we want to know John Partipilo’s Nashville — and, I swear, we do — we can start out just before dawn, see morning mist rising from the sleepy Cumberland River, and stop and stare at things we normally rush past. If we look closely, we can see a thousand collisions of agitation and inspiration, anxiety and certainty, motion and stillness, attention and disregard.” – Peter Cooper, Fatherland Street, 37206

John is an artist, and many would argue, one of the best photojournalists on the planet. His work reaches beyond the visual and touches something much deeper, something we can all see as both familiar and arrestingly unique at the same time. Each image in this book can be likened to both a painting and poem, images that tell compelling stories with a single glance, stories that stay in your mind long after the book is closed.

John has said that this is a book for residents, not tourists. While that is true, it is also a book for anyone who loves Nashville – the whole of Nashville. Yeah, Nashville is a tinsel town – a seedy, cheap, glitzy Nashvegas, but it’s also a deep and beautiful town with amazing history, created by immigrants, music, and a soft southern kindness that brings people from every walk of life together and teaches them how to be neighbors. By juxtaposing Nashville against Nashville, by showing us our own town and ourselves, John illuminates Nashville and shows us the layers of fun, sadness, joy, and beauty that make this place what it is and that make this town one of the strangest, most beautiful places in the world.
