Blog / Jeff Whetstone in Beautiful Decay

Posted

by Jerstin Crosby

I noticed recently that UNC Photography professor Jeff Whestone was featured in the “X” issue of Beautiful Decay. The photos BD published were from his Post-Pleistocene series.  NY Times critic Roberta Smith blurbed an exhibition of these photographs saying, “They record the accumulated drawings, signatures, messages and graffiti in caves in Tennessee and Alabama. The tools range from rocks and charcoal (such as the original cave painters used) to fluorescent spray paint; the mark makers range from slaves to contemporary teenagers.”   Whetstone has received numerous awards including the Guggenheim Fellowship in 2007, the Sakier Prize for excellence in Photography, and the North Carolina Arts Fellowship.  Go Jeff!!!
