One Place: Paul Kwilecki & Four Decades of Photographs from Decatur County, GA 

When: March 18-Oct. 5, 2013

Photographers' portraits of places are usually taken while passing through, or at best during a residency of a month or two. Instead, Paul Kwilecki simply stayed in his hometown of Bainbridge, Ga., taking pictures while he grew up and ran the family hardware store. One Place: Paul Kwilecki and Four Decades of Photographs from Decatur County, Georgia, on display through July 27, collects this self-taught photographer's striking black-and-white scenes of labor and leisure in his community. The four-decade span offers a rare level of insight into how Kwilecki's town both changed and stayed the same during his life there. The exhibition's accompanying book will be published by the Center for Documentary Studies in partnership with UNC Press later this spring. —Chris Vitiello
