Robert C. May Photo Lecture @ UK, Friday


Exhibition: October 5 - November 11, 2012
Lecture: November 2, 4 pm
in the UK Student Center's Worsham Theater

David Hilliard’s expansive, multi-panel photographs invite the viewer into the world of his subjects. His portraits are panoramic in scale and suggest subtle narratives about the nature of love, family, adolescence, and sexuality. Often the work is based on his own life, as in a self-portrait of him with his father. Titled Rock Bottom, they are emerged in a lake, both connected and separated by the body of water between them.

Hilliard’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States in addition to venues in Spain, Germany, and France. He received a John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in 2001 and a Fulbright Grant in 1995, among other honors, and his work is included in many collections, among them the Fogg Museum, Harvard University; George Eastman House, Rochester, N.Y.; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York
