Jack Carnell, Associate Professor, School of Design and Media at Philadelphia University will lecture on his color photographs in the Atrium Gallery of the Marshall Fine Arts Center at Haverford College on March 14, 2012 at 4:30pm with tea served at 4:00pm.
His lecture, Jack Carnell: Color Photographs From My Travels in the South 2006-2008 is sponsored by the Distinguished Visitors Committee and the Department of Fine Arts. It coincides with a one-person exhibition of his color photographs, Jack Carnell: Authentic America, Color Photographs 2006-2008 on view in the Atrium Gallery from February 24-April 22, 2012. A 40-page catalog is planned to accompany the exhibition.
This series began during the summer of 2006 when Carnell drove from Philadelphia south through Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee and Georgia. He photographed both urban and rural locations stopping along the way to photograph the vernacular culture with particular attention to storefronts, monuments and roadside views. He has compared his selection of subject matter as a kind to picking or selecting the beautiful, odd and eccentric particular to this region. He did not include any people in his photographs because he wanted the material culture of objects, signs, and buildings to describe the surrounding community and the local way of life. Carnell's photographs are a celebration of the everyday.
Carnell’s work is included in many permanent collections including the Museum of Modern Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Coca-Cola Corporation in Atlanta, the Musee d’art et d’histoire, Fribourg, Switzerland and Haverford College. He has been the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, National Endowment for the Arts and Pennsylvania Council on the Arts photographer’s fellowships. His solo and group exhibitions include Jack Carnell: Road Trip, at Philadelphia International Airport, and Social Landscapes at Philadelphia’s Open Lens Gallery. Philadelphia Professors of Photography, at the ADM Gallery in Philadelphia, Work from the Streets of Philadelphia: Photography 1970 -1985, The Print Center, Work from the Collection by Philadelphia-Area Photographers at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and One Moment in Time, at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, are among the numerous exhibitions to include Carnell’s photographs. His work has appeared on the cover of Aperture and The Philadelphia Inquirer Sunday Magazine, and in Interview Magazine, This Sporting Life, 1878-1991, published by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, and Artists Choose Artists, for the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia.
