Eric J. Shelton, Mississippi Today’s photojournalist, is one of 22 photographers from all over the world showcasing work in “Prints for Mississippi,” a print sale collaboration from the nonprofit Delta Health Center and The Raw Society.

The sale, which began May 11 and will run through May 25, is a fundraising effort for COVID-19 testing and affordable health care. All proceeds from the sale will go to DHC.

Eric’s piece, which features a member of Jackson State University’s Sonic Boom of the South band during JSU’s 2018 homecoming game, is among a collection of photographs showcasing Mississippi’s landscape and diverse population.
