American Lens: Black & White Photography

September 15 – October 19, 2016

John Langmore- T Lazy S Ranch

Five artists intersect in multiple ways. George Tice and Bank Langmore strive to preserve a memory of a specifically American time and place. Both observe environments where people live and work, one on the urban landscape of the East; the other on the scenes of the Cowboy West. Their examination of the everyday places that we may seldom notice is amplified and mirrored in the photographs of those they mentored, Bruce Wodder, Peter Bosco and the son of Bank, John Langmore. While striving to capture a truthful depiction of a chosen way of life, these five photographers also share the thread of using their images to illustrate the commonality of worlds at risk of vanishing. Curators: York Baker + Kirsten Pitts
