Yeah, we know a picture is worth a thousand words but as writers, we sometimes take offense to that. And then we saw the photographs from Rebekah Jacob Gallery’s latest exhibition Masters in the South: Black & White Documentary Photography from 1930-Present. Photographs from Peter Sekaer, Robert Frank, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Arthur Rothstein, Jack Leigh,  Ernest Withers, and others photographers will be displayed to showcase the landscapes and architecture of the South as well as the people who make the region what it is. Julia Cart’s work will also be on display — and she’ll be in attendance at the opening reception. Cart uses antique cameras and methods to capture important images in the Lowcountry as a way of preservation. She believes in the importance of natural light as well as old printing processes — but she’s got a few tricks up her sleeve, including studying studying mime, movement and theater at L’Ecole Jacques LeCoq in Paris. The former Peace Corps volunteer has returned to her Holy City home to rediscover her roots and, of course, artistically express them.
