The Idea of Cuba
January 31 - May 8, 2009

This remarkable journey into contemporary Cuba by photographer and writer Alex Harris is at once a powerful and mysterious evocation of life on the island and at the same time an original meditation on the nature of documentary photography. On each trip to Cuba, Harris chose a different camera, a new theme, and a distinct approach to peer deeper into the fabric of Cuban society and to show us the sides of Cuba that outsiders rarely see.

Like his mentor, Walker Evans, who photographed Cuba in 1933 at a pivotal political moment, Harris arrived at a crossroads in Cuban history. Harris made three trips to Cuba to photograph a nation still coming to grips with the economic and social devastation that followed the collapse of the socialist bloc in 1989, a nation beginning to imagine a future without Fidel Castro...MORE

UNDERSTORY: Lumen Prints of Florida Flora
February 28 - May 2, 2009

Over a two-year period Jerry Burchfield traveled to Florida to complete fieldwork, specimen gathering, and the photographic recording of plant specimens in various seasons and over a wide range of ecosystems. Although his project is chiefly artistic and evocative, it is also based on scientific principles and identifications. Unlike the earlier Amazon images, produced of necessity on the deck of a boat, his Florida images are land-based and therefore represent a far greater diversity formats, sizes and sequences. This exhibition features single images and multi-image collages. The largest collage reproduces the main elements of an entire east central Florida eco-system; the pine flatwoods...MORE

Organized by Patrick Van Dusen
June 2 - September 12, 2009

The photographs in this exhibition have all been taken anonymously by residents of the Stewart-Marchman-Act inpatient treatment center for substance abuse in Daytona Beach under the direction of photography instructor, Patrick Van Dusen. What emerged out of a chance meeting over 14 years ago between Patrick Van Dusen and Mike Malia, a counselor at Stewart-Marchman-Act, quickly evolved into an innovative program using photography as an impetus for personal reflection and group discussion – important parts of the recovery process...MORE

Highlights from the Permanent Collection
October 3 - December 16, 2009

(Re)Collections presents a wide-ranging selection of photographs from the Permanent Collection of the Southeast Museum of Photography. The exhibition is divided into two groups; the first being a sampling of the early works collected by the College's Gallery of Fine Arts from 1981 to 1990 and the second group presents selected acquisition highlights from the early years after the establishment of the Southeast Museum of Photography (SMP) in 1992 until 1998.

With an entire collection now numbering many thousands, only a very small portion of the potential work could be shown here at this time. Nonetheless, these two groups of acquisitions allow us to see the range, variety and scope of the entire museum collection in microcosm...MORE
