(Re)calling & (Re)telling
In conjunction with DC Fotoweek 2011 Morton Fine Art will present (Re)calling & (Re)telling, a solo exhibition of photographs by artist Kesha Bruce. The exhibition will be on display from November 5 through November 12, with an opening reception and artist talk with Kesha Bruce on Saturday, November 5th at 2pm. According to press notes, (Re)calling and (Re)telling offers viewers a contemporary entryway to the rich tradition of storytelling in art through the use of both photography and collage. For the past several years, Kesha Bruce has created work using an old collection of photographs taken by her grandfather during his years as a soldier during the Korean War. In addition to the many photographs of young African American soldiers going about their daily routines, the collection also included snapshots and informal family portraits taken upon his return home to Des Moines, Iowa. (Re)calling & (Re)telling was awarded the EnFoco New Works Photography prize and was included in the traveling exhibition Double Exposure: African Americans Before and Behind the Camera.
