The southern photography collection known as the Do Good Fund has joined with the University of Alabama to bring three exhibitions to Marion and Greensboro, AL, all of which run May 15 to July 31. The two shows in Greensboro include works from the collection as well as one dedicated show exhibiting the the fund’s recent acquisition of Gordon Parks’ segregation portfolio.
I’m proud to be apart of the third show in Marion, AL, and look forward to attending the photographer’s weekend event July 26-28. If you’re in the area or if your free that weekend you should definitely catch a flight or fill up your tank and get over to the shows!
SCAD’s Holly Markovitz Goldstein interviewed Brett Schenning, Andrew Sherman, and myself for an article on contemporary southern photography in the Society of Photographic Education’s Exposure Magazine.
“When Morning Comes pairs tender and strong portraits with lyrical landscapes. Thibodeaux presents a rich panoply of human lives and intimate events unfolding in inviting homes, sanctified churches, and under soaring skies. The series aims to balance his background as a photojournalistic documentarian with his affinity for metaphor, poetry, and whimsical allegory.”
Huge thanks for your elegant writing Holly! And applause to Brett and Andrew for the gorgeous and thoughtful photography!
There is a great write up over at The Bitter Southerner about The Do Good Fund, Inc. and it’s growing collection of great Southern photography. I’m proud to be apart of this collection. If you haven’t heard of the Do Good Fund, be sure to check out their site, http://thedogoodfund.org/. Not only do they collect great work but they have a tremendous commitment to sharing that work with communities large and small.
But enough of me, let the Bitter Southerner tell you.
