Gootee’s photograph selected for Landscape, Grand and Personal exhibition
Professor Marita Gootee’s photograph, The Fold, was selected by juror Eliot Dudik for the Landscape, Grand and Personal exhibition at the SE Center for Photography. The exhibition will run during September at the center in Greenville, South Carolina.
Gootee teaches photography in the Department of Art at Mississippi State University.
Dudik is a photographic artist, educator and bookmaker exploring the connection between culture, history and politics. His first monograph, ROAD ENDS IN WATER, was published in 2010. In 2012, he was named one of PDN’s 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch, and one of The Oxford American magazine’s 100 New Superstars of Southern Art.
The Fold is a lumen print of an 8x10 negative contact. The Jill Enfield Guide to Photographic Alternative Processes explains a Lumen as “...prints are made by taking sheets of unexposed black-and-white photo paper and placing objects or negatives on top as if you were going to make a photogram, but instead of using an enlarger you take the paper out into the sun. The results will vary due to exposure times, density of photogram or negative, quality of light and, most importantly, the type of paper.”
