Keith Carter is having a show of his work at Galerie BMG in Woodstock, NY, through June 28, 2010. The work on display is from his portfolio By Twilight, documenting his mother Jane's last year of life. Mrs. Carter, a children’s portrait photographer, died of Alzheimer’s disease.
This is powerful, haunting photography. Carter presents his portraits of his mother lovingly, yet evocatively of her own history as a photographer, even as she recedes into the darkness.
Keith is an award-winning photographer and educator who is the Walles Professor of Art at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas. He has exhibited his photographs in Europe and Latin America as well as across the USA. He has published eleven books of photography.
