As a point of departure for the exhibition, the trip provided Kish and Thompson with the opportunity to explore historical tropes of the American road, the zeitgeist of American modernist landscape painting, and their own personal narratives.

Over the course of their trip Kish and Thompson debated painting’s import in the 21st century. These conversations continued over the Internet in the weeks that followed

GRADUATE ALUMNA STACY KRANITZ, IN THAMES AND HUDSON MONOGRAPH

Stacy Kranitz (MFA 2014) in
Photographer's Sketchbooks
by Stephen McLaren, Bryan Formhals

Photographers Sketchbooks, published this month by Thames and Hudson, features 49 international photographers contributing rare looks at the evolution of their projects. The term “sketchbook” is used here as a broad embrace of any piece of the preparatory process: contact sheets, book proposals, film negatives, zines, pinned prints, and scrawled text — all are assembled in a compendium that goes behind the scenes of professional photography.

Kentucky-born Stacy Kranitz is as much a historian as an artist; for her series on Appalachia she spent years photographing people in the often stereotyped region, as well as collecting text from a local newspaper and other artifacts of the place, making her studio into her own “museum and archive."
