ABOUT THE EXHIBITION...
The Bible Belt is unbuckled in this examination of classic nude
photography within the context of the midwestern United States.
Images of the human body write a diary about the cultures that create
them. Photographic images are perhaps the most proliferated of images
and they often reflect the social and political climate under which
they were made. A challenging image which forces viewers to confront
or experience uncomfortable or taboo feelings may provoke contention
or even be a catalyst for change. Nude photographs can be political
because they represent not only individual bodies, but also greater
truths about contemporary society.
Photographers Jeff Palmer and Stan Trampe challenge the sensibilities
of local audiences in their exhibit of exquisitely photographed,
idealized nudes entitled,Sensitive Content.The exhibit poses this
question: Are certain images universally evocative and can their
impact on the viewer be influenced by the geographic context in
which they are viewed?
