WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Dec. 1, 2022 - PRLog -- (West Palm Beach, FL – December 1, 2022) Fatima NeJame, president and chief executive officer of the world-renowned Palm Beach Photographic Centre (PBPC), today announced that the nonprofit organization's 28th annual FOTOfusion will once again be live, January 24-28, in downtown West Palm Beach, and will spotlight photographer Keith Carter, who will receive this year's prestigious FOTOmentor Award.

In conjunction with FOTOfusion 2022, the Palm Beach Photographic Centre will present a major new exhibition:

Keith Carter

Only a Little Planet

Opening January 24, 2023

Free Public Reception January 26, 6 to 8 pm

"This exhibition is a survey of both vintage and recent work by Keith Carter chronicling the poetry of the ordinary, and the search for a moral and spiritual history of place, and photographs as autobiography," says NeJame. "He will also give the Keynote lecture at FOTOfusion on January 27 at 1 pm, looking at our history of 'writing with light,' our own shared histories, and the search for meaning in a tumultuous, occasionally puzzling, and often eloquent world."

Photography by Keith Carter has explored time, place, and vernacular culture for over 50 years, as well as having been exhibited in over 115 solo exhibitions in 13 countries. Sixteen monographs of his work have been published, along with two documentary films: Keith Carter: The Artist Series, and Ted Forbes and A Certain Alchemy, Anthropy Arts. A new monograph, Ghostlight, was just published by the University of Texas Press, which released Keith Carter/Fifty Years in 2018. He also contributed to nine other anthologies and received the Lange-Taylor Prize in 1991 from the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, and the Texas Medal of Arts in 2009.

Described as a "Poet of the Ordinary" by The Los Angeles Times, his work has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning and is included in numerous private and public collections, including the National Portrait Gallery, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the J. Paul Getty Museum, Houston's Museum of Fine Arts, the George Eastman House, and more. For mor information, please visit www.keithcarterphotographs.com.
