Two American Photographers on View

William Gedney and Paul Kwilecki
Through 8 September at Perkins Library in the Special Collections Gallery

Black and white photographs from the seminal collections of the Duke Libraries' Archive of Documentary Arts. Paul Kwilecki's prints reveal the minutiae of everyday life in his small hometown of Bainbridge, Georgia: from going to the grocery store to braiding a child's hair to attending the annual carnival. Prints from the William Gedney collection include photographs of life among coal mining families in rural Kentucky, the hippie culture of San Francisco, and urban scenes of Benares and Calcutta. The exhibit is on view in the Special Collections Gallery seven days a week. Call 684.3009 or visit http://library.duke.edu/exhibits/ for hours.
