The Suburban Atlanta series was published in A New Life: Stories and Photographs from the Suburban South, edited by Alex Harris with Alice Rose George. The images, texts, and excerpts from interviews, portray Atlanta as it was lived by people that Sligh met in 1996. In this series, the artist investigates the tensions between the fantasy and the reality of the Southern experience as experienced by people of color. She also explores the differences between individual freedom and social convention. A New Life is a book published by the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University in association with W.W. Norton & Company.
