Gathered: Photographs by Lucinda Bunnen
May 8, 2019 - July 7, 2019
One of the most respected photographers in the country, Lucinda Bunnen took up photography at the age of forty when she and her family traveled to Peru. There she discovered a love for the medium and the immediacy of its rewards, as well as a certain innate skill that she has honed ever since. As well as being a prolific artist, she is a collector and a renowned benefactor to the photography community in Atlanta, where she resides, and around the country.
Her work has been the subject of seven books; the most recent, Gathered, was published in August 2018. She coauthored three of those books—Movers and Shakers in Georgia (1978), Scoring in Heaven: Gravestones and Cemetery Art of the American Sunbelt States (1991), and Alaska: Trail Tales and Eccentric Detours (1992). In 1999 her work was the subject of a thirty-year retrospective exhibition, which was accompanied by an award-winning catalog, Trails, Tales and Transformations: Lucinda Bunnen, Retrospective Photographs 1970–1999.
She is represented in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Mint Museum, Charlotte; the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington D.C.; the High Museum, Atlanta; and the Morris Museum of Art, as well as in many corporate and private collections. She has participated in many national and international juried exhibitions, both as a competitor and juror, and is the recipient of many honors and awards.
This is her first exhibition at the Morris Museum of Art.
