For a while now, local photographer Harry Taylor has looked to the rich history stretching the banks of the Cape Fear River as a muse for his photography. In 2012, Taylor presented “Rio Jordan,” his 621N4TH solo exhibition featuring portraits and landscapes inspired by the culture and terrain of the Cape Fear region. Last year, Taylor followed up by installing a greenhouse at the Cameron Art Museum made entirely from glass plate negatives depicting local civil war history, much of which revolved around the river.
This Fourth Friday, the Gallery at SALT Studio, 805 N. Fourth St., presents “Requiem: Views from the Cape Fear,” the latest chapter in Taylor’s ongoing series covering the Cape Fear. Taylor will debut new tintype photography created in the antiquated nineteenth-century process of wet plate collodion, as well as large-scale archival prints.
The solo exhibition opens with a public reception 6 to 9 p.m. Feb. 27, in coordination with Fourth Friday Gallery Nights, a monthly self-guided art crawl throughout downtown Wilmington’s art studios and galleries organized by the Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County.
“Requiem” hangs through April 17.
