JACK SPENCER: THIS LAND, AN AMERICAN PORTRAIT
David Lusk Gallery Memphis / 97 Tillman May 23, 2017 - July 1, 2017
This spring, David Lusk Gallery presents Jack Spencer’s new photographs, This Land, An American Portrait. The exhibition of nearly twenty works spans thirteen years of imagery and the entire nation as source material. A new large-format book, This Land, published by the University of Texas Press, accompanies the exhibition.
Spencer began the series in 2003, as a response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. During the thirteen ensuing years Spencer traveled by car to forty-eight states to capture an immense portrait of what it means to live in America today.
