Up and Coming Southern Photographers, 2012, Part One -- Aaron Canipe
Hickory, NC-based photographer Aaron Canipe has a fine eye for the rural and small-town South, here in the early decades of the 21st century. He also has wit and a refined sense of irony, all helpful for the artist in our time and place.
On top of that, he's finishing his BFA at the Corcoran College of Art & Design in Washington, DC, and will have work in the annual NEXT Show, opening April 14th, 2012, with a reception at the Corcoran Gallery from 8-10 pm, and up through May 20th.
That means he's young, and has years ahead to develop and refine his craft and his vision. But he's off to a fine start.
