With October comes the monthlong Click! Photography Festival, which brings a sprawling array of photo exhibits and events to Triangle galleries and museums. One of them, by Alex Harris, is representative of the festival's national-caliber, local-focus bent. Harris, a founder of Duke's Center for Documentary Studies who has been collected from MOMA to NCMA, has photographed the American South for four decades, and looks through a distinctly Southern perspective even when shooting in Alaska, Havana, or Mumbai. This self-selected retrospective of well-known and obscure works is angled to palpate the theme of distance, a paramount concern for photographers both technically and ethically. The lenses of a photographer's eyes can distort reality as easily as the lens of a camera; Harris has spent a lifetime exploring those complexities. After this opening reception, the exhibit runs through November 4. —Brian Howe
