5:30 p.m. @ Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery
Jeff Rich is a widely exhibited and respected working fine art photographer. In 2010, he won the highly competitive Critical Mass Book Award, one of the highest honors for a working photographer today. His work has been featured in Daylight Magazine, as well as featured on Photo-Eye’s Photography Showcase. Currently, Rich is an assistant professor at the University of Iowa and is the curator of the Oxford Americans’ Eye on the South column about up and coming photographers who are working in the South.
Lecture: "Watershed: The French Broad River and the Ethics of Photography"
Rich will lecture about his photographic work titled, “Watershed.” The body of work is about the effects, abuse and exploitation of our Southern landscape. “Watershed” focuses primarily on the French Broad and Tennessee Rivers. Much like our own Waccamaw River, these two rivers face environmental changes through development, deforestation, and abuse by the casual weekender. His photographs juxtapose the natural beauty of the landscape with the harsh realities we face through pollution and change.
