Redneck Yacht Club is an 800-acre spread on the outskirts of Punta Gorda, Florida, home to the annual Trucks Gone Wild Spring Break. As part of an ongoing series studying the South, photographer Chadwick Tyler captures iconic images with a sense of humor, such as this mud-loving grannie.
Chadwick grew up in the small town of Valvico, Florida. A self-taught photographer, he began his commercial career later in life. He has challenged contemporary notions of beauty throughout his career, producing a body of complex and provocative images.
Chadwick now explores his cultural, political and personal roots through his candid record of portraits, landscapes and still lives entitled “God’s People.”
