photo-eye is excited to announce concurrent exhibitions by renowned photographers Keith Carter and Kate Breakey. These exhibitions will feature new work by Carter and Breakey as well as selections from established projects. Over 150 images are in the show including Mr. Carter's tintypes and Ms. Breakey's Gold-leaf prints.
, new work for Breakey, is an intriguing investigation into the use of gold as a material, and its meaning, throughout history. Here, 24 karat leaf is applied to common scenes and items – such as a nude, a piece of fruit, or a flock of birds – the addition of gold creates an unfamiliar experience touched by the surreal.
by Keith Carter is, according to the artist, “an exploration of the flora, fauna, and folklore of the swamplands in the American South.” For more than 30 years Carter has used traditional photographic materials to cultivate an extended portrait of the Southern identity. Far from straight documentary, Carter’s tintypes echo with notes of religion, mythology, and whimsy.
