Why should you attend?

“With gut-wrenching honesty and compassion, Timothy Duffy transcends himself in work that reveals his deep relationship to his subjects and their worlds. The collection of tintypes in Blue Muse deserves to be heralded as one of the great contributions to the history of photography.” —Steven Albahari, Publisher, 21st Editions

“Looking through Hugh Mangum’s lens, we are transported to another time. History comes to life in these diverse portraits of southern lives.” —Barbara Krauthamer, coauthor of Envisioning Emancipation: Black Americans and the End of Slavery

In War Memoranda, “…photographs of Civil War memorial sites, using the nineteenth-century cyanotype process, evoke at once the past and present, posing the question, “How far have we come since those terrible days?” —Aline Smithson, LensScratch
