University of Kentucky Art Museum

The UK art museum has a large exhibit of photographs by the late Ralph Eugene Meatyard, something that probably has never happened before.  Meatyard had a strange way of seeing the world and his photographs show that.

They are loosely divided into groupings such as his mask photos, interiors, exteriors, and the doll photographs.  I found the exhibit very enjoyable, if you are used to only enjoying landscape or waterfall photographs, these may not be for your.  With an open mind about art photography, however, they show an approach that is refreshingly different.

Meatyard was a member of the Lexington Camera Club way back when the camera club movement was popular and thriving.
