Opening Reception: The Colourful South And Troubled Waters says
Join us as we celebrate the opening of the two latest photography exhibitions "The Colourful South: William Christenberry, Birney Imes, William Greiner, William Ferris and Alec Soth" and "William Eggleston: Troubled Waters (from the collection of William Greiner)" during Ogden After Hours. Come explore the photographs of these six pioneers in color photography and the influence they had upon one another.

About "Troubled Waters": Released in 1980, four years after Eggleston’s landmark exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, Troubled Waters, is a glimpse into the photographer’s most prolific decade. The Troubled Waters portfolio features fifteen dye transfer color prints. This series portrays rural and roadside life in and around the Mississippi Delta, Memphis and points between.

About "The Colourful South": The Colourful South explores the role color photography has played in the history of Southern photography and beyond. Featuring five pioneers in color photography William Christenberry, Birney Imes, William Greiner, William Ferris and Alec Soth – this exhibition explores the influence of each photographer upon one another and situates their work in a larger narrative of photography in the South after William Eggleston.

These exhibitions will be on view at the Ogden Museum June 10 - October 26, 2017.
