University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC, Features Works by Fredric Tobias Morriss
The University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC, is presenting the exhibit, Silver Yana: The Photography of Fredric Tobias Morriss, on view at the McKissick Museum through Dec. 18, 2010. The exhibit features the works of Morriss, a beloved adjunct instructor who was tragically killed earlier this year.
The exhibit features black-and-white images processed with silver gelatin, which produces a stark, haunting effect. Also part of the exhibit are handmade cameras and some of Morriss's works that have appeared in Illinois, Louisiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and South Carolina. The exhibit is curated by Eric Plaag.
A native of New Orleans, Morris moved to Columbia in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina and became an adjunct instructor of photography at USC in 2006. He mentored photography students and helped non-photographic artists hone their craft and discover inventive solutions to overcoming philosophical and mechanical artistic challenges, until he died in February in a motorcycle crash.
