Documentary Photographer of American Life to Present May Lecture

Published: Nov 13, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 13, 2013)Carl Corey, who is known for his traditional documentary style photographs, will continue this year’s Robert C. May Photography Endowment Lecture Series with a talk at 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, in the Worsham Theater in the University of Kentucky Student Center. His exhibition, which will run from Nov. 15 through Feb. 2, will be on display in the Richard B. Freeman Gallery in the Art Museum at UK. Both the lecture and exhibition are free and open to the public.

 

Carl Corey travels by RV through towns across the nation offering insight through photographs about the workings of the people who inhabit them. In "Tavern League," he focused his lens on eating and drinking establishments that have long been essential to the social and cultural fabric of Wisconsin communities, but are in danger of disappearing as times change. That work led to his examining the plight of other family-run businesses in a new series called "For Love and Money." An ongoing related body of work, "Blue," honors the American worker, from factory floor to office desk.

 

Corey’s work has been exhibited in both solo and group shows in the United States and abroad; his work has also been featured in several of photography’s most prestigious periodicals including, Camera Work Bicentennial Edition, Communication Arts, Columbia Journalism Review and Visual Communication Quarterly. He is the recipient of more than 100 awards from the advertising, publishing and photography communities, including New York Art Directors Club, Communication Arts, Print Annual and USA National Best Book Awards.

 

Corey received an associate’s degree in graphic design from Northern Illinois University and a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Southern Illinois University’s College of Cinema and Photography. He lives in Hudson, Wis., with his wife, Kay, his dog/photography companion, Cheddar, and Cheddar’s puppy, Blanca.

 

The 2013-14 May Lecture Series explores appropriation, portraiture, landscapes and socially concerned photography. The series is made possible through the Robert C. May Photography Endowment, a museum fund established in 1994 for the support of acquisitions and programs relating to photography. Other photographers coming to town as part of the series include Catherine Opie and Eugene Richards.

 

The mission of the Art Museum at UK, part of the UK College of Fine Arts, is to promote the understanding and appreciation of art to enhance the quality of life for the people of Kentucky through collecting, exhibiting, preserving and interpreting outstanding works of visual art from all cultures. Home to a collection of more than 4,500 objects, including American and European paintings, drawings, photographs, prints and sculpture, the Art Museum at UK presents both special exhibitions and shows of work from its permanent collection.
