Image for Concept brings together photographers working with traditional photographic materials in nontraditional ways. The resulting artwork challenges the notion of the direct capture of the camera and investigates the camera and its components as art-making materials. This exhibition poses the questions: How much can a photograph be manipulated and still be considered a photograph? How else can a camera, film, photo paper, and light be utilized to create artwork?

This Is Climate Change is a fine-art photography show featuring breathtaking landscape photographs of the Pacific Coast Highway, fresh water springs of Central and Northern Florida, and the rugged natural landscapes of the expansive Texas plains. Kirk Crippens, Sharon Harper, and Benjamin Dimmitt each present a portfolio of photographs that capture these locales of the American landscape. This exhibition explores climate change not as a primary element of the composition, but as a now inescapable feature of landscape photography.

A special exhibition of photographs from the permanent collection of the Southeast Museum of Photography. Photographer Jose Ney traveled through many countries, including his native Cuba, investigating his connection to the land, the people, and the culture. A small collection of his work titled “Los Romanticos Angelos de la Tierra” was exhibited and then acquired by the Southeast Museum of Photography in 1995. In 2018 Ney Mila, Jose Ney’s son, enrolled in the photography program at Daytona State College.
Encounters, curated by Ney Mila and on display in the Rachael Raab Gallery, offers an intimate portrait of a photographer and a retelling of this man’s story through the eyes and words of his son.
YOUTH IN FOCUS
A dedicated exhibition space located on the second floor of the museum featuring rotating solo and group exhibitions by talented young photographers in the community.
Photographs by Meghan D’Arcy
The seventh installment of our Youth in Focus series features the work of Meghan D’Arcy, a 17 year-old student who attends Spruce Creek High School. She came to the museum’s attention through her continued involvement with our educational programs over the past several years and has quickly established herself as a talented portrait and lifestyle photographer.
A strategic balance of color, contrasting tones and strong compositions are a hallmark of Meghan’s style, along with a profound understanding of her subject matter. Her artistic intentions and stylistic choices are reflected in the scenes she so carefully orchestrates and presents to the viewer. Her subjects don’t simply blend into the background, they subtly alter them, challenging the lines and planes of the surrounding architecture with their own physicality.
COMING THIS NOVEMBER
Photographs and feature length documentary by Colin Finlay. More details to be announced.
