RALPH EUGENE MEATYARD SWEETLY SOUTHERN GOTHIC FAMILY ALBUM

RALPH EUGENE MEATYARD SWEETLY SOUTHERN GOTHIC FAMILY ALBUM
“You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you odd.” So goes one of Flannery O’Connor’s most enduring quotes, a salty twist on a dominical passage from the Book of John. Her words are useful to keep in mind when viewing the work of the Kentucky photographer Ralph Eugene Meatyard, whose images corkscrew so quickly, and playfully, from the ordinary to the grotesque that they often leave you unsure of your bearings. Through his lens, the true and the weird are mirrored properties, undulating and deceptively pleasing to the touch.
