FEBRUARY 14 — MAY 12, 2013

Curated by the Nasher's acting interim director Sarah Schroth and Duke art historian Patricia Leighten, "Light Sensitive" is drawn from a number of important North Carolina photography collections and from what I know of it, will be a completely transporting experience for any photography lover. Personally, as soon as the doors open, I'll be heading straight away to the "Untitled, 1960" Ralph Eugene Meatyard image, which I've taught for years but have never seen in the flesh.

I'm delighted to have a piece included in the show ("Outside Amarillo", 2006, from the Frank Konhaus and Ellen Cassilly Collection) which will be staying on after the show as part of the permanent collection at the Nasher. More details about the show and accompanying programming at the links below, which include a Supporting Members private tour of the show on April 9th, with me and Sarah Schroth, a lecture by Burk Uzzle, and a gallery talk with Sarah Schroth and Frank Konhaus).
