Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC, Features Works by Daniel Farnum

Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC, will present Daniel Farnum: Young Blood an exhibition of the photos of artist Daniel Farnum, on view in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery, from Oct. 10 through Nov. 27, 2013. A reception will be held on Oct. 10, from 4:30-6:30pm.

Young Blood focuses on the youth culture of the once thriving industrial cities of Michigan. Farnum investigates how the prolonged economic downturn of cities like Detroit has shaped the youth culture after years of economic decomposition in the region.

“Primarily,” states Farnum, “I focus on the disenfranchised, the misunderstood, the urban pioneers, the aspiring thugs, and the hipsters whose youthfulness contrasts the harsh condition of the places in which they are photographed. Of particular interest to me is how this under-populated yet developed urban landscape promotes a type of freedom due to lack of order.”

Farnum, born in the blue-collar town of Saginaw, MI, captures the region with familiarity and intimacy. His photographs address the American experience, landscape, and culture and have been showcased nationally in several exhibitions and galleries in San Francisco, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and New York. He received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and BFA from the University of Michigan.

Daniel, Assistant Professor of Photography at the University of Tulsa, is the recipient of many notable awards such as the Aperture Award from The Print Center in Philadelphia, two prizes from the Paul Sack Architectural Photography Contest, Grand Prize Winner of the Missouri Top 50 contest, and the Juror’s Selection Award given by Christopher Rauschenberg at the Center for Fine Art Photography.

The Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery is located on the Campus of Coastal Carolina University in the Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts.
