For more than 20 years Birney Imes roamed the countryside of his native Mississippi photographing the people and places he encountered along the way. His work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Art Institute of Chicago, La Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris and many public and private collections in the U.S. and abroad.
Gordon Stettinius' work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, his photography can be found in both private and public collections, and he is a winner of the 2009 Theresa Pollak award for Excellence in the Arts. Stettinius is represented by Robin Rice Gallery in New York and Page Bond Gallery in Richmond, Virginia. He is also an emeritus member of 1708 Gallery in Richmond, Virginia.
In 2010, Stettinius decided to start up an independent publishing company, Candela Books, which released its first fine art photography book, a monograph of photographer Gita Lenz. In 2011, Stettinius published Salt & Truth from American photographer Shelby Lee Adams. Sunburned with images by Chris McCaw was published in 2015.
