Rubenstein Library Photography Gallery, 411 Chapel Drive
Durham, NC 27708 United States
+ Google Map

William Gedney (1932 – 1989) is one of the key figures of American street photography. His work in India is the series to which he devoted the most time in the field and the last he labored to organize and edit.

DIAPOSITIVE: the 35mm slide upended

July 26 - November 4
Cassilhaus NC United States + Google Map

In Diapositive, six artists take on found or neglected 35mm slide collections as medium and subject matter, subverting the format’s 20th century associations as didactic or diaristic storytelling tools. Once the premier medium for the communal presentation of photographic travelogues, as well as art historical instruction, 35mm slides collections are rarely built today yet they still persist and change hands, chiefly among artists, librarians, film enthusiasts, and nostalgists. Their beauty and complexity as objects, symbols, and relics, often prevents their…

This growth is reflected in the day-to-day lives of the Burmese, as the heavy hand of government lifts ever so slowly. Vibrant colors pervade their work and their worship. Yet, behind the warm and welcoming…

To be "Southern," one must either have been born south of the Mason Dixon Line or have "people" there to claim it as native ground. The truly Southern, that is to say native Southerners, are either descendants of slaves, indentured servants, Native peoples, or the original colonist of the region. Contemporary Southern identity is complex. What captures the essence of the South and her Southerners today? Is it the spirit of evangelicals, the presence of whom influences and continues to…
