Part I -- Southern Photographers in the News -- Late Spring 2017
Yr Humble Servant the Southern Photographer is still catching up after a very busy spring season in his customary professional life.
Nevertheless, we are on our way. Here's a start, some items of interest. Will update this blog entry over the next few days, so check back.
1. Douglasville, GA-based photographer Jack Deese (see image above) has work from his How to Orient Yourself in the Wilderness porfolio featured in AINT-BAD, go here.
2. Nashville-based photographer Jack Spencer (see image above) has published a new book, This Land: An American Portrait, with the University of Texas Press.
This book consists of gorgeous, well-seen landscape photographs, and you can see more of them at the feature on Spencer's work by Aline Smithson on Lenscratch, go here.
3. Honorary Southern Photographer Eugene Richards (see image above), who has done several major bodies of work in the American South, is having a major retrospective show of his work at the Eastman Museum in Rochester, NY, opening June 10th and up through October 22nd, 2017.
This show, entitled The Run-On of Time, includes over 150 of Richards' images. You can learn more about Richards, and about this show, in the PDN Online story, go here.
You can also read a review of this show, from the Wall Street Journal, here.
Mother Jones has also published a review of this show, here, praising Richards as "the photographer America needs now."
4. Alabama-based photographer Jerry Siegel has published a new book, entitled Black Belt Color, which is now available from the Georgia Museum of Arts bookshop, here, or from the usual and customary source, here.
