George W. Gardner, “Ozark Mountains”

Still time to visit Deborah Bell Photographs to see an impressive collection of images by George W. Gardner. In the vein of “road” pictures reflecting a particular place and time, the photographs are also standalone art works in their composition and print quality.

Titled for his 1982 monograph, AMERICA ILLUSTRATED: PHOTOGRAPHS
BY GEORGE W. GARDNER, the exhibition  features early prints of images
from this highly acclaimed, exquisitely printed book. The black-and-white
photographs, made by Gardner with his 35mm cameras on road trips throughout
the mainland United States from 1960-1980, reveal a nation of contradictions. Its
people are obsessed with guns, Bibles, the Vietnam war, the cold war and
partying at Mardi Gras, in a nation still beset by issues of racial segregation.

Make time to see this slice of history. Now through June 30.
