The Cumberland Plateau: Photographs by Jack Stoddart
October 15, 2005 - November 13, 2005
The Morris Museum of Art acquired a set of Jack Stoddart’s Upper Cumberland Collection of photographs in 2003 and here exhibits it for the first time in The Cumberland Plateau: Photographs by Jack Stoddart. During the seventies, Jack Stoddart worked in a sawmill and as an assistant to a veterinarian, while living in a primitive log cabin. All the while, he began documenting the remnants of the Upper Cumberland’s rural heritage, processing his film and enlarging his negatives in an old grocery store restroom. Stoddart’s lens captured the forms and textures of people and things that had found a traditional place in the Cumberland: a hermit’s house, a swinging bridge, a wagon road, a mule team, a barn, an old fiddle.
