Land Inhabited & Works of Baldwin Lee at Moca Ga - The Do Good Fund-

 

Sep 23, 2016 - Nov 19, 2016

“The Do Good Fund, based in Columbus, Georgia, has built a collection of southern contemporary photography that is unmatched in both breadth and scope. This exhibition features 58 photographs from the collection, including a large number of works by Baldwin Lee. Lee’s photographs capture the history of the south, carefully extracting the character of the places and people photographed. When reviewing and selecting the works for this exhibition, a theme seemed to emerge organically among all of the artists featured: these works display places that are occupied. Some photographs speak to the remains of where humans once were and the history of those inhabitants. Others mark direct relationships between different people, the structures they have built, or both. The photographic documentation of the communities and histories in this exhibition truly show the essence of a land inhabited.”

–Annette Cone-Skelton, Curator
