About Corrosion & Desolation:
A solo exhibition of photographs by Raleigh photographer Greg Myhra will be on display at the National Humanities Center starting December 1, 2006. The show, entitled Corrosion & Desolation, includes nearly 40 black and white images that explore the solitary, unrelenting nature of the desert apparent in time-worn buildings and signs as well as the local flora and geology. In many of the studies, medium format plastic cameras are used, their distorted optics enforcing the feeling of nostalgia and age particular to the subjects.
The show draws from Heavy Transport, Desert Ramble and Blister Bomb, click for Greg Myhra's Fine Art Section
All of Greg Myhra's photographs are archival pigment prints, which have the ability to hold more detail and nuance than many traditional darkroom processes. Like darkroom prints, with proper handling, pigment prints are as archival. Myhra's images are printed with the highest quality archival pigment inks on a variety of fine art paper stocks. Prints are available as limited editions, which are titled, numbered and signed by the artist.
Recent exhibits of Myhras work have been held in cities around the Southeast and Midwest. His photography has been seen in many publications, including Klik Showcase Photography and Graphis Photo Annual, and is owned by a variety of private collectors.
Corrosion & Desolation will be on exhibit at the National Humanities Center through February 28, 2007.
