This Thursday, when the smoke from independence day fireworks has cleared across the US, the celebration of America will continue on with the opening of William Christenberry Photographs, 1961-2005 at the Aperture Gallery in New York. As a pioneer in the field of color photography, Christenberry has faithfully articulated the regional identity of the South over the last four decades. The exhibition includes fifty photographs and one sculpture and highlights his passion for capturing "real things in the real world" with breathtaking images of abandoned cars, dilapidated barns, and quiet back roads in Hale county, Alabama where he grew up. Christenberry returned to many of the same locations every year and his work chronicles the powerful physical evolutions imposed by the passage of time. The exhibition at Aperture is also accompanied by the release of a brilliant monograph surveying the progression of his work with many previously unpublished images.
Opening reception with the artist on 6 July 2006 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. The show runs from 7 July - 17 August 2006, and the catalog is available for $35.
