Item No. 1416194 : Malcolm Lightner, Keg Stand, Florida Sports Park, 2006 D3AB Archival Inkjet Print, signed, numbered "1/8" on the reverse. 1000 - 1500 Directly from the artist. 17 x 22" Condition Since 2002, I have been traveling back to my hometown to photograph during the swamp buggy races, a long-standing local tradition in the Southern most regions of Florida. This project began as a desire to rediscover my own roots as a fourth generation native and has since led to a more long-term commitment to photographing Florida vernacular and the American social landscape. The photographs from ?Mile-O-Mud? are an attempt to capture the feeling of being in Florida ? the heat, the vivid color, the cuisine, and the blue skies. At the same time, I am interested in revealing the personal narratives and struggles of the people who form its? communal values. And working on this project became a sort of anthropological investigation, exploring and documenting a fleeting slice of American life. *Biography* American, b. 1969 Malcolm?s work is rooted in the distinctly American tradition of ?Southern Photography? developed by Walker Evans, William Christenberry and William Eggleston. Never condescending to simplistic, heavy-handed irony, Malcolm?s pictures portray a speci?c vernacular Floridian culture with a level of respect and an acute sense of purpose rarely seen in contemporary photography. Instead, by combining the traits of an articulate narrative storyteller, probing cultural anthropologist, and contemporary visual artist, Malcolm chooses depth over distance, imbuing both his pictures and his subjects with a profound sense of dignity. His work has been featured in numerous exhibitions including: Art + Commerce Emerging Photographers and Joint Venture: Selections from the Dr. Barry S. Ramer Collection & Other Photographs. His work has appeared in publications including Life Magazine, Florida Trends Magazine, Guernica, Photo District News and Visual Arts Journal. Malcolm relocated to New York City in 1999 where he currently resides and is on the faculty of the School of Visual Arts in New York City. This photograph is in excellent condition.
