DAILY ARCHIVE: Nicole White

Wed 23 Sep

Nicole White is an artist, curator, historian, and writer. Currently, she is Photography Lecturer in the School of Art & Visual Studies at the University of Kentucky. In her artist’s statement, White explains that, “I’m never sure if I am a photographer, yet I work solely with photography. Its complex relationship with art and commerce, its democratic nature, and its proliferation throughout society in a multitude of forms are what keep me actively engaged with the photographic image.”

The artist’s uncertainty speaks to the diabolical complexity of photography as a medium; that it can represent so many things beyond its capabilities as a documentary tool. Photography is so commonly pigeonholed, and just as often the work of White and so many others explodes myths and preconceptions. Her investment in the Louisville Photo Biennial 2015 is significant:
