Ralph Eugene Meatyard
Dolls and MasksBook - 2011
In 1950s America there were neither likely nor logical paths for a photographer. Family man, optician, photographer and avid reader, Ralph Eugene Meatyard found himself in the midst of a cultural and philosophical movement in Lexington, Kentucky, which at that time included such figures as Thomas Merton, Wendell Berry and Guy Davenport. Through the camera, Meatyard explored and created a fantasy world of dolls and masks, where his family members played the central roles on an ever-changing stage. Dolls and masks opens the door on a decade of rich experimentation, presenting 55 mostly unseen works from the artist.
