This Nashville Photographer’s New Tome Will Brighten Your Outlook


Book cover with leather armchair and cowboy hat

Alyssa Rosenheck is more than a photographer and stylist; she’s also an author, speaker and lifestyle expert of sorts. In her first book, The New Southern Style: The Interiors of a Lifestyle and Design Movement, out September 22, the Nashvillian describes herself as the founder of a design movement; one spearheaded by Southern creatives who use vulnerability and authenticity to help propel social and cultural change. To underscore this concept, Rosenheck ventures inside the private domains of 30 recognizable names—from regional tastemakers (Sean Anderson, Clea Shearer) to former Southerners (Gray Malin, Bobby Berk). Her style of photography perfectly illustrates the invitation she extends in the book’s 320 pages: “to live in the light.”
