UPDATED -- Southern Photographers in the News -- Early Summer 2015

Several items of interest, liable to be updated at any time --

1. Wilson, NC-based photographer Burk Uzzle (see image above) has been featured in the New York Times LENS blog, go here.

The subject of the story is Uzzle's current show Burk Uzzle's American Puzzlesat the Steven Kasher Gallery, at 515 West 26th Street, in Manhattan, up through July 31st 2015.  

Uzzle's show has also been featured or reviewed here:

2. Charleston-based photographer Vincent Musi (see image above)  is is interviewed in the New York Times LENS blog, here, for his work for National Geographic and his role in the development of the Look3 Festival of Photography.

For more background on Musi's work in the American South, go here for a story in the Charleston Post and Courier.

3. Chapel Hill-based photographer Lori Vrba continues to have an incredibly successful 2015 (and it's just June!).

Her new book Moth Wing Diaries, from Daylight Books, has been chosen by the folks at American Photo magazine as one of the Top 10 Photo Books for Summer 2015, go here.

Her current show of her Moth Wing Diaries portfolio at the Catherine Couturier Gallery in Houston, TX has received an ecstatically positive review in the Houston Press, go here.

4. Jeff Rich has recently featured, in his Eyes on the South series for the Oxford American, Susan Berger's documentary exploration of streets named for Martin Luther King, Jr (see image above) and Greg Ruffing's photographs of yard sales. most of which were made in the American South (see image below).  

5. Last, but surely not least, for now, is the news that the Texas Photographic Society has upgraded its website, here, making it even more useful for photographers.

The TPS website is my go-to source for information about photography, fine art and otherwise, Southern and otherwise, so its great to see the good folks at TPS not only keeping up their good work but taking it to new levels of usefulness. 

That's the news for now, but there's more to come. There's always more to come, from Southern photographers.
