A special exhibition of photographs from the permanent collection of the Southeast Museum of Photography. Photographer Jose Ney traveled through many countries, including his native Cuba, investigating his connection to the land, the people, and the culture. A small collection of his work titled “Los Romanticos Angelos de la Tierra” was exhibited and then acquired by the Southeast Museum of Photography in 1995. While Jose Ney made a strong impression on the museum and the world of photography, the person most impacted by his work was his son, Ney.
Encounters, on display in the Rachael Raab Gallery from August 27 through October 26 presents the work of Jose Ney, curated by his son, Ney. The exhibition offers an intimate portrait of a photographer, and a retelling of this man’s story through the eyes and words of his son.
