View of photographs of forgotten places in Alabama and throughout the South. In the history of photography, Hale County, Alabama, has become nearly as well known – through over four decades of photographs by William Christenberrry – as the Brown Sisters are through Nicholas Nixon’s annual series. Working with a large-format camera and informed by studies in sculpture and painting, Christenberry has defined an image of southern vernacular: row houses, sun-bleached paint, folk customs, and the inexorable advance of kudzu. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear him talk about his own work, which includes drawing, painting, and sculpture, new images alongside iconic photographs, and over 40 years of making art.
