Titus Brooks Heagins and Dave Alsobrooks: The Trip: A Story of the South

December 20, 2019

Stamps alum Titus Brooks Heagins, (MFA ’02) and artist Dave Alsobrooks have searched the American South for origins of Southern Hip Hop and portraits.

Dave Alsobrooks wanted to create art in an unusual medium: dirt—specifically from locations significant to the Southern hip-hop artists who inspire him. Reaching out to photographer Titus Brooks Heagins, the pair embarked on “The Trip” across the South, gaining a deeper understanding of race, poverty, and the delicate art of friendship.
