This exhibit is comprised of fine art photographs by renowned photographer Nicholas Price. Price spent 18 months, from 2005-2007, capturing the men and women of the U.S. Air Force to tell the story of their pride and dedication, stamina and service. Price took more than 8,000 photographs and painstakingly selected 60 for this exhibition, according to the Library of Congress, which acquired the collection in 2009.
"The 60 photographs create a valuable visual story for understanding the hard work of today's military," said Helena Zinkham, acting chief of the Prints and Photographs Division. "This compelling photographic essay, created to honor the men and women of the Air Force, enriches the library's collections by providing a contemporary counterpart to our historic resources."
This exhibit will continue through Feb. 3, 2012. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. The gallery is closed Sundays, Mondays and college-observed holidays. For more information call 352-873-5809.
The exhibit is part of the Nicholas Price International Traveling Exhibition Services (NPITES) and is supported in part by the Price Family Trust and fellow board members, Tough Tribe Publishing, Omega International, The Preservation Society of Black and White Film and Jenkins Auto Group.
