Michael Light and Clifton Meador

February 6th, 2014 at 7:30 pm 

Michael Light is a San Francisco-based photographer, bookmaker, and pilot whose focus is the environment and how contemporary American culture relates to it. His work is concerned both with the politics of that relationship and the seductions of landscape representation, particularly as found in the arid Western spaces of America. He works with found, appropriated imagery gleaned from public archives and his own 4 x 5" negatives, most often taken from the air. Visual books are at the root of most of his output.

Clifton Meador is Chair of the Department of Art at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC.

"I am a writer, photographer, printmaker, and designer. I combine these disciplines to make artist’s books that explore how the narratives of culture, history, and place are the basis for identity. Human identity is not monolithic, nor is it a simple linear narrative, and I use the book as a strategy to present this complexity. Who we are depends on who is asking; and the book, as an artistic vehicle, offers countless ways to create complex, engaging narratives."
