Jeff Rich takes in the Work at PhotoNOLA
Jeff Rich made it to New Orleans last week for PhotoNOLA, and filed a report on some of the highlights on his Eyes on the South blog for the Oxford American, here.
Rich especially singles out work by Baton Rouge-based photographer Jeremiah Ariaz (see image above), now on display at the Cole Pratt Gallery.
Rich also singles out tintypes by Kevin Kline and Bruce Schultz (see image above, which were on view for one day at a pop-up show at 809 Piety Street, in New Orleans. For more information on this work, go here.
Also on Rich's list is an installation at the Front Gallery featuring work by Lee Deigaard (see image above) from his "Crusher Run: exploring landscape a stone's throw from the interstate" portfolio.
Finally, Rich was taken with the display of photo books curated by Tammy Mercure at the Press Street Gallery, and including books by a whole slew of folks (full list here), of whom Rich singles out Aaron Turner, David McCarty, Shawn Kelly, Tamara Reynolds, and Anne Conway Jennings for special notice.
Thanks to Jeff for this fine report, and for giving us stay-at-homes a taste of the riches of PhotoNOLA for 2014.
