Photography is as much a historical document as it is an art. Every pretty portrait and thunderstormy landscape is not just an image – it’s also a moment in time, and it’s the job of the photographer to transport the viewer to that moment and that place. For this show, Crealdé photography department director Rick Lang has curated a show that includes the work of three Southern photographers who are especially good at creating images that capture the essence of both the history and the art of the perfect shot. Beth Reynolds’ photos are both personal and impersonal – still-life photos of things in her mother’s home create a portrait of the woman as a function of the objects she surrounds herself with. Richard McCabe’s Holga and Diana images of manmade landscapes from around the Southeast are unironically retro and surprisingly vibrant. Frank Dienst’s bromoil prints are timeless and eerily ancient at the same time. – Erin Sullivan
