Greene, Bey, Karen, Sole -- Honorary Southern Photographers in the News

Photographers who are Not From Around Here but who address in their work issues and concerns central to the Southern experience should in my view be regarded as Honorary Southern Photographers.

Some of these folks have important projects going at the moment.

Honorary Southern Photographer Myra Greene now has work from her portfolio My White Friends (see image above) in a show entitled About Face: Contemporary Portraiture , now up at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri,  through January 19, 2014.

Greene will also have work in a show entitled Construction at the Averill and Bernard Leviton A+D Gallery, Chicago, IL August 15 - September 18, 2013. 

She is also included in the show Framed: Identity and the Photographic Portrait at the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University, in Boston, opening September 3and up through October 12, 2013, and in Histories/ Photographies DePaul Museum of Art in Chicago, opening October 11th and up through December 8, 2013.

Dawoud Bey (see image above) also has work in the Construction show at the Averill and Bernard Leviton A+D Gallery, along with Myra Greene.

Bey also has work from his portfolio The Birmingham Project up at the Birmingham Museum of Art in Birmingham, Alabaman, opening September 8th and up through December 2, 2013, and at the Rena Bransten Gallery, 77 Geary Street, in San Francisco, opening  September 5 - October 19, 2013.

Andrew Karen (see image above) has work from his portfolio White Pride is the subject of a feature story now up on the news blog Slate, here. 

Magdalena Solé (see image above) will have work from her Mississippi Delta portfolio up at the Southeast Museum of Photography, 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd, in  Daytona Beach, FL, opening September 13th and up through December 15, 2013.
