Fine art photographer and photography historian Russell Jeffcoat carries on the tradition of shooting with film that characterized the prolific output of Richard Samuel Roberts and Maxey Russell. Works on loan from the Columbia Museum of Art collection are aligned with Jeffcoat’s contemporary pieces to create “Transitions.”
Jeffcoat has long admired – and studied – the works of these two photography pioneers and stage-setters who captured, for posterity, a notable demographic of Columbia society as well as examples of the Capital City’s build environment.
One of a rare breed of photographer still shooting film, Jeffcoat continues the portrait legacies both earlier photographers established.
The exhibition of Roberts and Maxcy together is even rarer. To be joined by a contemporary photographer makes this show a new visual experience for Columbia history lovers and art patrons.
To see the exhibition showcasing three photographers, come to City Hall on First Thursdays and during business hours. Free.
