Justin Kimball: Elegy

Text by Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa.

Justin Kimball: ElegyThis series by photographer Justin Kimball (born 1961) features small towns in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Ohio brought to the brink of obsolescence by the recent financial downturn, capturing their streets, residents and landscapes in photographs both sensitive to their subjects and compositionally striking.

While imbued with social and political subtext, Kimballís images--of ramshackle buildings against a landscape, a mother and baby on their front porch, roadside church signs and teenagers playing a game of pickup basketball--carry a broader significance. In his depiction of communities faced by hardship, Kimball examines the persistence of hope and the concept of what it means to be human in our modern world. His photographs document a growing--yet often overlooked--portion of the American landscape, providing an impressive portrait of the present day.

Justin Kimball: Elegy

"I cannot tell from picture to picture in Justin Kimballís Elegy whether it was the mill that failed, or whether it is the prison that sustains the small town," Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa writes, "whether in this place the crisis owed from the plant, the river, the shale, or whether it suffers at the hands of some calculus located offshore. The pictures interweave a sense of weary anticipation for a future with a tone of deep lament for the scattered pieces of the past." It's a hauntingly timely book, which Kimball will sign tomorrow at the SPE National Conference 2017. continue to blog
