One Place, our exhibit of black-and-white photographs by self-taught artist Paul Kwilecki, is closing on October 5, 2013, after an extended run. The exhibit will be traveling next to the Crealdé School of Art in Winter Park, Florida, and to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art at the University of New Orleans. 

One Place: Paul Kwilecki and Four Decades of Photographs from Decatur County, Georgia
Through October 5, 2013, at the Juanita Kreps and Lyndhurst Galleries
Center for Documentary Studies
1317 W. Pettigrew St., Durham, North Carolina

This collection of photographs features images from a critically acclaimed book of the same name, edited and with an introduction by Tom Rankin and published this April by the Center for Documentary Studies in partnership with the University of North Carolina Press. In addition to more than two hundred images, the book also includes Kwilecki’s written descriptions and musings about the people and places he depicted in photographs taken in and around his hometown of Bainbridge, Georgia, over more than forty years. “I don’t make pictures to decorate walls,” Kwilecki said. “I make them to shed light in dark corners.”

A photographer, filmmaker, and folklorist, Tom Rankin has been documenting and interpreting American culture for nearly twenty-five years. He is the director of the MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts and the former director of the Center for Documentary Studies, both at Duke University.

The Paul Kwilecki Photographs and Papers Collection is held in the Archive of Documentary Arts at the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke University.
