A Gallery for Fine Photography presents a career spanning solo show in conjunction with the publication of Keith Carter’s 50 Year Retrospective book.
Keith Carter is an internationally respected artist, educator, workshop leader, and recipient of the Texas Medal of Arts. Lauded as “a poet of the ordinary,” Carter makes photographs that address the concepts of place, time, memory, desire, and regret. Carter holds the Endowed Walles Chair of Art at Lamar University in Texas, where he has received numerous teaching awards. Since the late 1980s, his timeless images of people, animals, objects, and landscapes have been published in 13 acclaimed monographs. A new retrospective book, Keith Carter Fifty Years, is scheduled for release by UTPress in Fall 2018. His photographs are in numerous collections including the Getty Museum, Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Art Institute of Chicago, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Mr. Carter will give the PhotoNOLA 2018 Keynote Address on Dec. 13 at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
